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.
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.
