The hours of darkness are the worst
My mind goes to places where I don’t want to go
I try to sleep but thoughts crowd in.
I can dismiss them through the day.
The sun shines and I have things to do
. But when night falls and all is stil
l No sounds to hear but the beating of my heart.
Dare I close my eyes i am afraid to do so.
What if I don’t wake up,
but I wouldn’t know
I struggle to sleep for each waking moment is precious.
I don’t want to miss one single minute
But sleep I must and trust in God To wake me in the morning and let me live.
