Oh, sleep, why do you evade me?
Why do you tease me with brevity?
Why do you hate me so?
I want, crave, long sleeps –
the kind falls beautifully deep.
Please do not avoid me.
Do not ignore my pleas.
Remember the last time?
The last time we walked the moonlit path?
Peaceful and ever so refreshing.
Tonight, let’s dance the night away,
and welcome the morning light.
