When All Is Still - Poem by Audrey Heller

Trying to sleep at night, sometimes,
can be a chore! I have to say, no
matter how long I remain in bed, I
just can't stay there anymore. I don't
know why, when all is still, a million
thoughts run through my mind. I try
to divert these thoughts, but still, I
can't, unwind! So what's the answer
to this dilemma, how do I overcome?
I can't lay there for the amount of time
I do, because sleep for me, just doesn't
come! How exasperating, I find this to
be and it's getting to be a habit, every
single night. Of course I find different
things to do, but it still doesn't, help my
plight! I wonder why, when all is still your
thoughts always seem to go astray? The
things that go through your mind, you'd
rather not think about and wish, they'd go
away! I guess there must be a remedy,
but so far, I know of none that really works
and frankly speaking, I'd love to find the
perfect cure. But until that all comes about,
I'll just keep myself so busy until I get so
tired, my bed, will take on, a certain lure!
