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.
