It’s one o’clock in the morning, and I”m fighting sleep.
I don’t know why I’m having this moment,
But I’d rather lie in bed and type than weep.
The worries of the day, both past and yet to come
Have left me with my eyes wide open,
But my emotions are practically numb.
It’s quiet, now, as I’m the only one awake.
I could turn off the light and close the laptop,
Just giving in to the night is all it would take.
But as soon as I close my eyes, I’ll be asleep.
I should be praying for peace, giving it to God,
It would really probably help if I’d just weep.
The sooner I close my eyes, the sooner the sun will shine
And shed light on the battleground of my life.
I guess that’s why I want to savor the nighttime.
But there’s no winning without fighting,
And I”m not going to be any better off dead on my feet,
So, I guess it’s time to give up and go to sleep.
