I close my eyes and wish

For sleep to kiss my cheek

Caress my tired neck

And let me rest my mind.

Instead I lie awake

Uncomfortable and sad

If I could ignore the world

Lose my thoughts

I would be glad.

Night ticks into day

Light blooms in my eyes

I want real sleep to stay

To end my tired gloom.
