untitled poem

as summer approaches
i cover my face
wanting to find
my own quiet place
to lay my head
on a cool, crisp sheet
why can't i have
a nap that's complete
without all this light
and sunshine and cheer
when will it leave?
never, i fear
i want to sleep
for all of the day
so nighttime come quick
please don't delay
your pale moons and gray
skylines above
in darkness i rest
peaceful, in love

  1. Granny would LOVE this poem for her. EXACTLY what she was feeling these last few weeks. You always were completely tuned into her.
