But my thoughts are loud,
Wrestling with the past and near future,
I toss and turn in the shadows,
Waiting for the sweet release of sleep,
But it doesn't come,
I'm too focused on me,
I can't see the starry lights in the darkened sky,
Or the milky way, Or the universe filled with galaxies upon galaxies,
As my thoughts finally turn to You,
I take my eyes off my small problems,
They seem tiny next to your size,
So, I surrender all my worries and troubles,
As I drift off into a deep sleep.

Erin-oh how I can relate to this! My mind loves to race when I climb into bed. A very lovely poem.
