Dawn stumbles into day
The dark rolling into gray
My body shrouded in twisted covers
Unrequited, after a night’s dreams of imaginary lovers

Lumbering back to reality, my mind begins to clear
Leaving behind those, during the night, it held so dear
The snooze bar reluctantly grants five more minutes of nightly bliss
Time to say goodbye and linger on one last kiss

Day foolishly runs to greet the night
Recklessly anticipating the fading of the light
The soul willing to take the chance
That at night, in dreams, my spirit will finally be able to dance

Surrendering quietly I let go my grip on waking
My aims and goals in life temporarily forsaken
Quieting my limbs I close my eyes and hazard a last deep breath
And wonder, to myself, how different sleep may be from death
