Eyes are stinging slightly,
the tiredness is always there.
The world of sleep is mighty,
through days it makes us bear.
Oh it could be so easy,
to fall fast asleep.
It would be less painful,
than to lay awake and weep.
Weep is not the only thing,
sometimes I stay awake and ponder.
At times I even laugh and smile,
and ever so often I wonder.
Because at night it's still and silent,
and my thoughts have room to roam.
So why should I fall into slumber,
when my thoughts have found their home.
A night owl people call me,
but that's the wrong phrase to use.
I love to sleep no more than you,
but at night my thoughts let loose.
So don't you even question,
the naps I take at day,
It's bright and loud and noisy,
and my thoughts are far away.
