The Switch

I wish I had a little switch,

for when it’s time for bed.

Just a flick and the chatter stops,

that goes on inside my head.

No more endless dialogue,

to keep me wide awake.

And no more pills or sleep aids

would I ever have to take.

Just say my prayers, and give a yawn

then off to sleep I’d go.

I’d close my eyes and with smile,

lay back and watch the show.

    • Thank you Candace! I never really gave that a thought before, as to how difficult it might be for writers. Wow! That really must be a challenge!
