Sleepless Nights…..

It's a long, long night
when sleep doesn't come,
and myriads of thoughts
around your brain have swum.
With much tossing and quick turning,
long sighing and loud yawning,
slow hours tick on past
'til another day is dawning.

Eventually it's time
to face this brand new day,
but in your messed up bed
is where you wish to stay!
Now up you get and stagger on,
there's no use to keep on moanin',
it's just your gender and your age
that depletes your melatonin!
