Dear Sleep

Updated on September 08, 2015

Dear Sleep,

Day after day, and night after night,

ever so elusive to me.

Please tell me what did I do?

How can I fix this?

I wasn’t trying to make an enemy of you?

Longing to feel refreshed and full of energy

after your visit.

I want to be able to Tigger-bounce out of bed,

and greet the day with a smile.

I yearn to be fearless,

and eager to conquer the world.

When day turns into night,

I yearn to feel my eyes grow heavy to close out the light.

However at the close of each day

my mind seems to keep you at bay.

Am I a fool thinking you can help me with this plight?

Eager to rest would be sheer delight.

Once again, as I lay my head to rest

Close my mind and settle my distress.

Dear Sleep, please help me in my quest.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment. I have suffered from insomnia for over two years. I just need to get my mind to shut down. Thank you again.
