The restlessness I feel tonight,
will only last until it’s light.
It’s all because I can’t ignore,
these jumbled thoughts, I’ve had before
I remember things I wish had’t,
Things that had been long absent.
My mind will rifle through these files,
when it knows I haven’t slept awhile.
And, when I’m done with past regrets,
I conjure up new things to fret.
Oh, how many nights I’ve troubled.
Behind my eyes, these thoughts have tumbled.
Pound by pound, they add up,
If only I had a measuring cup.
Because, I will watch and watch these shows,
Until that cocky rooster crows.
