Nights quiet sounds

In the quiet of the night with no one is around
I close my eyes and just relax listen to every sound
The humming of the furnace blowing, warming all the air
The tiny little pitter-pats of cats climbing the stair

Hearing the quiet breaths of my son in the bed
Above all the buzzing noise tinnitus ,in my head
cars driving down the street and tires make the sound
The pavement creaks as rubber meets fast tires on the ground 

Occasionally a chime will ring as the air does blow
I wonder whose house has the chime,must I really want to know? 
As quietness takes over,the sounds become more rare
I need to get to sleep at night, I must take better care

Insomnia fills my nights I want to sleep at night
Impossible it always seems,  so instead I write
