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.
