Sleepless Night Again

Updated on May 31, 2013

alone again or not?

Can´t sleep again,in too much pain,..

Pills and potions, gels and lotions

Makes me think of you.

Are you awake with shoulders hurting

or sound asleep

I hope so.

The wind is pounding on my windows.

No rain, just gusts of wind like gales,

rattling my window frames.

I wonder if God is watching

Does he watch the whole world?

The millions who are homeless.

l wonder how they sleep?!

I´m safe upon my window seat,

reminds me of my childhood.

A window seat with velvet softness

in comfort l could watch outside.

As l do now in still of night

no sign of movement anywhere

except the trees,can´t help the breeze,

or winds or gales. None of these.

But God must have some action

action He could take..................

I know He´s real and wants to.

He´ll not let it go too late

Too late to save our planet

the one He gave to us.

the flowers, plants and animals

All put in our trust.

Does God have feelings?

Does He care?

I would if this were mine

If l´d created streams and mountains

fruit and wheat, so much to eat.

Then to see his children fighting

See them starving when there´s enough.

Enough for every person to lead a happy life.

enough to help the helpless,enough love

to go around. Food grown in abundance,

yet reaching but a few.

I wonder what God thinks

I wonder what He´ll do?

Don´t tell me there´s no God

I´m far too tired to argue.

Awake again at night

don´t know why my body

puts up such a fight.

Afraid to sleep for nightmares?

yes, l know that could be true,

but here l go again ,back

to thinking of you.

l hope you are asleep

and resting weary bones.

You give and keep on giving

l´d best leave you alone,

or tired you´ll  be if l call you in the night

and that will never do.

You need your strenght to fight.

You´ll fight again for others

Tommorrow and the next

You´re such a good example

your reward it should be ample.

The bible lets us know ,

which way we ought to go.

The golden Rule, you always say

and surely there´s no better way.

with love

to you

from me

    Oh, I've seen my share of sleepless nights. It seems these lonely hours are when the creative juices flow the most, but are also the times when you question things that normally would remain happily unanswered. I really enjoyed this one Dim. Awesome!

    THat was beautiful and peaceful.You are doing what we all do so many times in our lives look for answers.WhY?I read some time ago that the world is so simple we could never understand.I thought that didn't make sense to me.But years later I think I am starting to understand.I go to work alot and when I come out here this is my freedom to love life the way I want to.To share my insights with the world.Good bad right or wrong.I give it my best shot.I listen to what people say and try again.I keep trying.For years I thought let someone else do it for me.Let them get all the credit and I just want to go to work and leave it at that.You can get the praise.You can get the raise.You can have all the power.I just want to do my job and do it well and go home.I want to live my life with the people I love so much and think about them often.Keep work seperate than my personal life.When the years rolled by I noticed one thing no one could just leave me alone.No matter how good my job was.No matter what I told them.Soon I noticed how difficult it was to keep apart no matter how much I tried.I had to learn that my life isn't just my wife and I.Then both our immediate families.It was close friends.Then people I haven't seen in years.Then new friends.Then work and my bosses.I could not leave them out of my life no matter how hard I tried.Things in work would just pop up and I would talk about them outside of work.Then people I knew in work became my friends.Then even my old bosses and some new bosses became my close friends.Even people I didn't like liked me.I didn't want that.The more I tried the less effective I became.It was useless.So why fight it.It was life and I will never understand why things happen.But now looking back at it years later.I appreciate the good and the bad.Some how I can never separate the two.Gods plan not mine.So I have learned to give to those who don't appreciate or understand.To love those who don't want to love.Life goes on and has gone on with us in it.It has gone on long before us and long after us.I think and I could be wrong but God wants us to find our own solutions.So we can take the credit and stand up and be counted.He doesn't want to just do one miracle and bam the world is fixed.Because then we haven't learned our lesson.We hav free will to do what ever we want to do in life.We make choices every day to do good or bad.If you keep writing and sharing your feelings with others.Opening our eyes up to questions and answers.Many times not the right ones.But answers that can lead us closer to the right ones.Then when we least expect it.Simple as it may be.The problem is solved.We can laugh out loud or to ourselves.Soon that problem that was so big in our lives isn't even a thought.An inkling in anyones thoughts.Why talk about something that bothers no one no more.The solution is here before our eyes.The another problem takes it's place and here we go again.I feel like the great Abbott and Costello Whos on first routine.So all in all life is full of problems and messes.We are people who learn how to deal with them.We experience every joy and pain from them.With out them life would be boring and you would have to listen to me how good life is all day.I am just a dreamer and my life will never be as happy as I see and want it.But with comments from you all the time for a second it was perfect!!In every way.I felt it and it was real.I know it in my heart that keeps beating like an automatic drum.I just don't have sense enough to pull the plug.I am too simple to understand.Life is people.All people.The world is our oyster and we are the pearls.I am sorry for the long comment.I try not to comment to often.I think way to much.What am I trying to say.I loved your poem and all your writings.I wish I had your talent.I don't.But I have the imagination to dream and no one can ever take that away.Love your day.I have to go I pissed my wife off again and she doesn't understand I wanted to finish this now or I would forget or loose the courage to tell you.I am in hot water again breakfast is getting cold.How can that be a problem.I nver complain and I like cold food.I am the one eating it.(Ha Ha)

    I love you Dim. I can't help it. I'm with you Girl. I wake with pain I ride my bike with it. I'm tortured with it. But Dim- I want that pain. If I could take yours on my shoulder I would and I will. I want MY pain to keep it from my daughter, you, or anyone. Please God keep me my pain before you give it to someone else! I love you Dim! God bless you Girl! And you know I love your Golden Rule. Earth will continue the downward spiral until our leaders stop pretending! You know how it is! Feel hugged today and tomorrow, please!

    Hi Dim - yes, it's so easy to have doubts, isn't it? And pain can be one of the worst triggers. Here's to peace and sleep, free of pain.

    God is here in the stillness in our hearts. No matter where we are just open up your heart to listen to the small voice of hope. Don't despair, God has a master plan for all of us and the world, it just will happen in good time like the blinking of an eye we will all see what get's unfolded in his time.

    Peace my friend and try to sleep, empty your mind and think pleasant thoughts and that should help you fall off in peace.

    So true Dim. I don't doubt that God is there, I know He hears and sees. I sometimes wonder if we are worthy of him answering our prayers. I hope you sleep well and the nights begin to bring you peace. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. Blessings!! xxxxxxx

    Very beautiful. We ask life what it can have in store for us, and ask god what he has in store for us. Sometimes he will answer, and other times, no reply. Looking for guidance, looking for a sign, looking and seeing nothing come can wear a person down. Trying to take on the worlds problems you seem to be talking about here. Maybe getting someone to "see" us and acknowledge us, helps to define who we are. We nudge reality, and if it is real, it nudges us back. If it doesn't, then it isn't reality...

    Great hub. :)
