sleepless

there’s a firefly on my window
a golden dot strobing in the night
darkness, as he flutters out of sight
but for the faint, cloud-veiled moon-glow

can’t sleep, went to bed hours ago
closed my eyes hoping that I just might
there’s a firefly on my window
a golden dot strobing in the night

take a breath, give sleep another go
plump the pillow, turn off every light
restful sleep should not require a fight
morning will be here before we know
there’s a firefly on my window
