Sweet dreams

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,
but unfortunately,
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


  1. Lovely! I used to write poems back in grade school, about love & life too. Btw, is this a song?

  2. Haha, I used to remember when I was a kid I had this book where I used to write poems in it. I wonder where it is now.
