Elusive Sleep

Elusive Sleep

Shadorma (3/5/3/3/7/5


late at night
sleep is elusive
I have tried
to count sheep
but after driving miles
not one could I find

in the dark
wandering the house
I have drank
warm sweet milk
two cups of valerian tea
but sleep eludes me

reading books
does not seem to help
my thoughts race
my head nods
I loose my place yet again
but am quiet awake

sleep, oh sleep
my quest not fulfilled
why are you
shy tonight
I wait for you my lost friend
alone in the dark
