Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Battle Of The Bed


When I cannot sleep
and I toss and turn
all night listless long
my bed is my enemy.

When I am absolutely exhausted
or really exceptionally tired
or on wet rainy dismal days
my bed is my beloved best friend.

Then bedtime
is a wonderful time
then ace I win
the battle of the bed.

Such nights and days
are wonderful times
and restorative bed
is the best place to be.

When I have aced won
the battle of home bed.
