Lack Of Sleep
When your mind deprives you of sleep
It plays tricks that can be quite neat
You see faces almost everywhere
Some are good, some drive you spare.
Noises of the house in rest
Creaking groaning, night time pests
Whispered words you long to hear
Night time ghosts keep us in fear.
But when the face you see above
Is the face you have grown to love
It sends the ghosts back to the realms of night
From whence they come until it’s light.
The face that never launched a ship
Just launched your heart in a backward flip
Never worry about the lack of sleep
If that’s the company you get to keep.
