End to insomnia

Meek sleep tapped on the door
lightly, oh so lightly

I got up off the bed
(while remaining where I was)

and let her in
lightly, oh so lightly

    You make it sound so easy. With me, sleep is often to meek to knock.

  6. She’s an elusive one, eh? Meek sleep sounds like a tender maiden who would flee at the first sharp movement. Lightly sounds like just the right approach. Give me lusty sleep that wrestles me down and hangs on way past the dawn.

    Evocative. Thanks.
