Counting kisses


Theyíre robbing me of needed sleep
These visions in my head
I think I should be counting sheep
Iím counting kisses instead

Hypnotic states of wayward thought
Occupy my head
I try to find one sheep in naught
But see a kiss instead

Sometimes I click a lamb icon
With envisioned fingertips
But the window opens up upon
A picture of your tender lips

So effortless the subtle change
In patterns of my sleep
That deep repose would  rearrange
If I were counting sheep

I havenít seen a single ewe
Jumping oíre my bed
But kisses coming right from you
Consume my room instead

I am content to toss and turn
In sleepless bliss, Iíve said
For jumping sheep I do not yearn
Iíd rather count each kiss instead

Itís pointless to assume that I
Am bothered with the lack of sleep
For I am very satisfied
Counting kisses instead of sheep
