Sleep Elusive

I cannot sleep
My mind is racing
Inside my skull
My soul is pacing
Now all that I want
Is just to find
A way to leave
Wakefulness behind

Two in the morning
I long for sleep
But when I try
The minutes creep
By without release
A mind not tired
Keeps on rushing
And feeling wired

Sigh and roll over
Try once again
Get up for a while
A minute or ten
I know in the morning
When the day dawns
I’ll get up exhausted
Troubled by yawns

Time to go back
To my cosiest bed
To close my eyes
And hope it will let
Me find me my rest
So tomorrow I will
Grasp hold of the day
With energy to spill
