Amelia Patterson Poems
My Dear Friend
Feelings of love and care flow through
My entire body as I sit here.
Your touch is comforting, and
Your words are healing.
Your energy is soft,
Your smile beckons my
Heart to open up
And let you in.
I am grateful and humble
To have someone so dear
I feel I can lift my spirits
Because you are here!
Waiting anxiously for the time to sleep.
Not being for sure when the time will come.
Sitting lazily, counting the white sheep.
Waiting, waiting, feeling just so dang dumb.
Eyelids are drooping, falling with such ease.
Our droopy eyes are slow-melting toffee.
Our heads rest in our hands, trying to tease.
Our sockets are sagging; we need coffee.
Just thinking sleepy thoughts, not knowing jack!
