Poem: Where's Mr. Sandman?

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

Poem Summary

"Where's Mr. Sandman? " is a poem about tossing and turning beneath the covers. Our frustration grows as we watch the hands on the clock and we are still awake. Tears from being tired build in the corner of our eyes. We hope the sandman arrives soon to take us to dreamland.

Where's Mr. Sandman?

Frustration grows,

tossing and turning

beneath the covers,

as the hands on the clock keep moving.


Tired eyes still awake,

head bobbing from one pillow to the other,

thinking of the hour

the alarm will sound.


Yawning

with tears silently rolling

in the crevices of her eyes,

tormented by the night owl

lurking in her bones.


Praying Mr. Sandman brings his magic soon,

dozing her off to dreamland,

letting her wake in the morning

with a spring in her step.
