Now I lay me down to sleep
I bid my mind, “Don’t make a peep”.
But all my words were stuck all day,
And now my all through my head they play.
And now I’m forced to decide
To write right now or stay and hide
Beneath my sheets so cozy warm
And just allow the thoughts to swarm.
I fear I’ll forget them when I wake
It’s just a chance I’ll have to take
Because my body’s oh so tired
Even though my mind is wired.
Please grant me now a good night’s rest
So tomorrow I can write my best.
