The Sound of Sleep - Rest Up Child...

art: Mary Ann Licudine

I Toss and Turn -
When I should be sleeping
I know it's time for Bed.
But the thoughts I'm thinking,
Won't spare me an instant of rest
With a long week lying ahead
My eyes closed tightly,
But nothing is working.
I remember, I think, the noise.
The Sound of Sleep -
Like the grasses whispering
And the Street Lights humming.
While the Crickets Sing.
Where is the Sound of Sleep -
Oh, Why don't you come?
Why don't you -

words: me (right now)
