Sleep you have escaped me
Then again what else is knew.
For I never seem victorious
when my quest...my pest, is you.

But you love to linger 'round me
leave me late at night to think.
Then laugh at my misfortune
when I can not catch a wink.

Still I cant give up the struggle
For the Morning Comes too soon.
Then it seems you want to snuggle
the entire afternoon!

Hi Kevin -

Loved this piece.
Understand it perfectly.
However, I find that sleep comes best
when it sneaks up on me.
I quit trying to make it happen a long time ago.
