Today

              Today

One sheep, Two sheep
I can’t seem to find sleep
Got thoughts in my head, so
Today will not let go
Hello… looks
Like a sleep.. less night

Three sheep, Four sheep
Tangled in the bed sheet
Tossing and a turning
Roasting hot and burning
Hello… looks
Like a sleep.. less night

Five sheep, Six sheep
Come on sleep, please creep
Get me out of this bind
Get her out of my mind
Yoyo… looks
Like a peace.. less night

She said, I said
Join me in the marriage bed
I don’t seem to think so
Today will not let go
Oh no… looks
Like a rest.. less night

Me thinks, She thinks
After I’ve had forty winks
I will see it her way
Get me out of  today
I say… looks
Like an ease.. less night

Morning, Yawning
A brand new day is dawning
I know she’ll go loony
When I do a Clooney
Hey ho… looks
Like a sleep… filled night

    Hello Richard, thank you for the sweet comment on my poem. I'm watching a movie in which is boring the zzz's in me..LOL. I think I'll call it a night tonight. I have no problem when it comes to counting sheep... Did you know I count Unicorns instead of sheep. This was fun to read. Hope your not having trouble sleeping. ... Goodnight... you Sweet Dark Friend... Linda
