Sleep?


What is sleep really?
A place to rest your brain?
A place to rest your body?
Why do you evade me?
I am tired, my eyes heavy, yet no sleep.
Toss, turn, stretch or how I want to sleep.
Close gently eyes and be peaceful mind.
This is not a time to chatter.
Oh, sleep why do you evade me.
Body is tired, eyes are heavy although mind, oh my.
Be still mind of mine and let the body rest and the eyes close.
Oh, sleep come gently to this body.
Peaceful, restful, joyous sleep.
