Poem: Restless Sleep

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"I Sleep Just Like A Baby" by George Jones

"Restless Sleep"

Loneliness creeps in,
yearning to hear the sound of his voice
the moment before she lies down,
spiraling through her veins
a comfort like no other,
snuggles her fast to sleep.

Like a toddler
lost without his security blanket,
she tosses and turns
until the wee hours of the morning,
restless to find comfort
when his voice is no longer there.

"A Life In A Day Of A Fool" by Keith Whitley
