UP LATE…BUT WHY?
I’m up again late at night
With too much ear and tooth pain…
So I’m up writing verse on WordPress,
‘Til the pain settles down again.
I thought I had eaten reasonably
With no caffeine later at night…
But lo, I’ve yet to get sleepy,
Staying in bed has been quite a fight.
So I’m up—drinking her water
From a bottle fresh from the ‘fridge…
Through writing and drinking I’m still wide awake,
It hasn’t helped me a smidge.
While she’s getting ready to go in to bed
I’ll stay out here some more…
I expect I’ll soon be hearing
My beloved in the midst of a snore.
I’ll stay out here list’ning to music,
A reflective kind from the TV…
I’ll wait ’til her breathing grows quiet
And then it’ll be time for me.
