Sleep Tight - Poem by Rini Shibu

Sleepless nights are worst
When is mind full of thoughts
And the night seems long
When darkness surrounds
No stars are in the sky
Are they shy
The moon is hiding
And clouds say it's raining
The night is quiet
And I wish to sleep tight

    Hi Riny,
    This is an experience which i share with you. When the mind is full of thoughts, it is impossible to sleep.
    You wish to shut your mind and sleep but cannot. A little poem so well crafted.10++
