As another million thoughts rush into my head,
I groan and sigh,
and let my frustrations out onto my bed.
I wait impatiently for sleep to embrace me,
I just never seemed to be that lucky.
My phone beeps and I reach out for it,
I see your name,
my heart decides to skip a beat.
We text back and forth for what seemed like an hour,
you seemed to calm me,
the thoughts in my head beginning to cower.
You wanted to call so I said yes,
When I heard your voice,
I thought of one little request.
Soon you spoke of aliens and princesses and happy endings,
I smile to the phone,
wondering how I earned such a blessing.
My eyes later on began to weigh a ton,
and I fell asleep,
just in time for the story to be done.
"Sweet dreams" I heard you say,
I did just that,
my mind more than happy to obey
