I missed the sunrise

I missed the sunrise

Today I did not see the sunrise,

buy the time I opened eyes

the new day, had already arrived.

It’s a wish, that I’ve had for a long time,

for happy thoughts, and happy dreams.

To send me a more pleasant sleep.

Then awake,

well rested and bright.

Don’t get me wrong,

there was a small fight.

it was dark 1am,

when my bladder spoke to me,

“Come on get up I’m desperate to pee”

So I rolled out of bed and shuffled to the loo.

Took care of business,

then shuffled back too.

Now back in bed,

my bladder appeased.

My eyes swiftly closed,

I was back in my dreams.

A rarity these days, indeed.
