The Gift Of Sleep

Updated on September 14, 2017

Why Do So Many People Take Sleep For Granted ?

When I close my eyes

I am so happy and relieved

No matter how my day went

I am at peace

Within minutes I am in a deep sleep

I know I dream every night

It has been only recently that I have been remembering parts of my dreams

I get up the next day on a normal schedule

After about five to six hours sleep

When I go off to la la land

An earthquake could happen and I wouldn't wake up

I can eat right before bed and it seems to have no affect on me

I have heard it's not healthy and you gain weight when you do that

I only snore when I am really tired

My wife is a sound sleeper too

If she goes to bed too early she wakes up in the middle of the night and can't sleep

I could take a three hour nap in the afternoon and still sleep right through the night

I have heard so many horror stories how people toss and turn

Some people wake up abruptly because they have to go pee

I am so glad that is not me

Now it's 2:02 in the morning

I will be crawling into our bed soon

Taking my rightful place along side of my wife

For those who are restless and can't sleep

I wish you a wonderful sleep tonight

From the time you close your eyes

Right to the time you have to get up

Feeling alive and well rested

Ready to tackle anything

If sleep ever hits the stock market

I will be the first to buy one thousand shares

Sleep gives my body time to refuel

Just like a plane that goes from one destination from another

I need all systems ready to go

I have been blessed with good health

I think the main reason is

I can sleep like a pro

Just like my cat Charlotte

Anywhere at anytime

Once my head hits the pillow

Everything will have to wait

Thank God for sweet tomorrows

      Ah yes. Lately I am so glad for sleep and no dreams. The few I've had I have forgotten as soon as I wake up. Nighttime movies help and a bit of wine to take the edge off.

      Fantastic! You've hit a jackpot in " The Gift of Sleep" coming to you following common sense of daily routine , discerning your bodies does and don’ts, simply doing right things right. Established disciplined work ethic is a few people’s priority. Thats where from comes peace within ourselves, peace with fellow man and peace with God. It is written "You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly." You know it and I am happy for you, because my portion is identical. Keep up with good work.

      Good night.
