Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

29 Feb

Yesterday it was because you had a wedding out of town.
Two days ago we were in a fight.
The day before, I had to be up early the next day, so I turned in early
Before that, the kids wanted me to sleep with them.
And before that, I don’t remember what let me sleep.
I try sometimes to work so hard during the day, that at night, I don’t have energy to think, and my body just goes to sleep.
And maybe tonight, you just went to lock up, but I’m too tired to wait up and see you again
Maybe, it’s possible, right?
And that’s why you’re not sleeping next to me tonight.

Tomorrow night and every night for the rest of my life, I’ll find other reasons not to acknowledge that I’ll never see you again, and maybe my mind will let my body sleep.
