Sleeping – Prose for Thought


Oh how I took for granted
The easy slumber’s now departed
That fog when you awake;
I’m in a semi conscious state

Delirium at 4 o’clock
Hold the babe and rock rock rock
Jolting yourself you nearly fell
Oh how I wish I had a spell

When I was younger I didn’t think
I clearly was the weakest link
All those times I got up early
Such a fool; I wasn’t worthy

A few hours to recharge
My sanity is now at large
I try to keep myself from weeping
Oh how I miss that thing called sleeping

    So so true. I like “jolting yourself you nearly fell” – that has happened to me many times. Great image.
