Time

Image

Heavy lids wish to rest

But it is not time yet

Staring at the clock on the wall

I see that it is 7:43 in the evening

The sun is setting, the moon is rising

But it is not time yet

 

Time tells me there is much to do

A long day is nearly behind me

I wish to rest now

But it’s not time yet

Finish what you began earlier today

The hands on the clock push me forward

 

Dishes are done and my sweet child is asleep

I look toward my room where my bed awaits

But it is not time yet

Messages returned, I’ve locked the doors

Surely there can’t be much more

But it is not time yet

 

Bills are paid and laundry is put away

The arms of my love beckon me

I’ve been more than ready

It must be time now

The hands on the clock try to push me further

But their strength has waned

 

The sun has set here and risen elsewhere

The stars have come out to play

All around me it is quiet and my mind finds rest

With only a couple of hours till a new day begins

My body lies down and my heavy lids finally close

The hands on the clock still move forward, but in silence now

 

Because now it is finally time

Time

It is time

For rest

And time

Time to end this rhyme

      Insomnia isn’t fun, I do deal with that, but not in this instance. 😉 Thank you, Sheri!
