Sleep

Waking early,
And being unable to return to the land of slumber,
Idly I wonder
About our need for sleep,
For we can not pretend
That he will not take us all in the end.

      Thank you for your comment. I am sorry to read that you have had insomnia all your life. I am fortunate in that I usually sleep soundly and hope I never develop sleep issues. Best wishes, Kevin

    Sleep – a short poem with just six lines. Just six lines with a mere 35 words. Yet those six lines conjure up such a thoughtful and I have to say, really quite profound poem and one that made me reflect for some time afterwards on the meaning of our own existence! Well done Kevin. I just hope that further contemplation of this issue won’t keep me awake at night…
