Do I have to go to bed ?

Updated on May 6, 2010

It is late go to bed

When I was young

There was always something fun on t.v. when bedtime rolled around

If we had company that is when all the adults would start talking

Then the excitement would happen

I would tell myself I could listen from my bedroom

This way I wouldn't miss a thing

But soon I would fall fast asleep

 I am older now

I make all my choices for myself

When to go to sleep

Or even if I want to

I can stay up way after the midnight hour

Not just on New Years Eve

But any day I choose

I can watch the sun come up before I snooze

I can fight my eyes from shutting

I can rub those eyes that are all red

I can watch movie after movie

or I can be smart and just go to bed

      the voice Every night I stay up late I hear my fathers voice (in my head) say Isn't it time you go to bed.When I was in college and lived at home I would be up all hours of the night trying to get my studying in.My father didn't understand I had so much homework and this is the only way to get done.I remember those years and living on only a few hours sleep a day.Thanks for reading.

      Darlene Sabella Night owls can sleep in the day or night.Where day people just sleep at night.I like to think we are so lucky.We get to play all night long.I too love to sleep in but most of the time I try to get up early to get things done. Jill of alltrades it is a small world.How wonderful it is to share the simple things in life that go unnoticed by so many.

      Oh they had one heck of a time getting me to bed, and I still fight it. However, I am a night person, mornings don't suit me I like to write in the late hours of the night, where the phone never rings or visitors stopping my. Sleep, is also great because I love to dream. Great hub my friend, thumbs up

      Poet I am excited to begin again and with new hopes and dreams I cross a new river and stream.I see the light shining on me.I feel the wind behind me.I love to live and search for wonderful times ahead.

      poet I just try to throw some humor a long way.Nights are for some night owls.Do you stay up late sometimes. If I get a thought in my head I can go all morning and then some.If I go to sleep it is gone forever.

      I love thinking about my childhood.The memories. I have many good ones.I love working nights I feel like I break the rules every night since I go to bed about 3 A.M. all the time.It is the rebel in me.What time do you normally go to bed?
