Sleepless Nights - Poem by Don Pengilly

Sleepless nights belong to me
As if that’s all there is to be
My nights seem oh so long
Thoughts buzzing round my head
As lying here in my bed

Tried praying off to sleep
But thoughts seem hard to keep
Mind strays from this to that
A thought brings forth a tear
Sometimes bliss sometimes fear

Tossing turning while awake
Trying to sleep for goodness sake
Cant get settled any way
Trying hard no matter what
So unsettled seems my lot

So I lie here struggling still
Passing time my mind to fill
On things that matter not
Dwelling on the things now past
Until some sleep I feel at last
-Goodnight-
