Rise and Shine Sleepy Head

Updated on January 27, 2020

I Have Heard That Line Many Times In My Life

Some people stay up really late

So it is almost impossible to wake them up

I get it

Not in my case

I just love sleep

Always have and always will

Some children fight sleep and stay up as long as they can

I was the opposite

Time for bed

Goodnight and see you in the morning

When I was really small

I picked up a habit of rocking my head back and forth

I would sing myself to sleep

When I finally got tired

Off I went

It wasn't till years later when I finally stopped

Now I am lucky if I get five hours of sleep a night

Busy with all the things we have to do

Trying to squeeze in every last minute to every day

I work nights and that is a challenge for a lot of people

They like to go to bed early and get up early

Now I go to bed late and get up early

I can sleep day or night

If I am sick I toss and turn

I usually sleep more

Time to get up

Sleep we will have to leave for another day

      Brenda Arledge Some days I power sleep and get eight to ten hours. On my average day 5 or 6 hours. I try to take one fifteen-minute cat nap later during the day. It refreshes me in a good way. When I do sleep I go out solid and nothing wakes me. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a wonderful afternoon.

      Yes. This life we have now with so many different shifts.

      It makes sleeping quite a chore, especially if we get days off and get back to a normal routine for just awhile.

      Sleep is supposed to be important, but it seems fewer hours leaves us kess time to achieve that needed deep sleep.

      Good write.

      Devika Primic So many people are downright cranky and are just awful when they are lacking sleep. Irritable to say the least. They rub you the wrong way in the morning and it kills the whole day. I like to start off good and end great. That takes years of practice and I am slowly starting to show improvements. Have a super morning and it is a lovely pleasure to see you. Thank you again.

      Diana L Pierce I have so many routines that keep me balanced and working well. Once and a while you might want to split it up. Give an old changeup. Your brain is forced to think differently and it is good for keeping your brain active and healthy. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my poem and comment. I am thrilled when someone shares their thoughts and dreams. Have a great night and an awesome Monday.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Ten o'clock is still in the morning and you got the opportunity to work when you feel the best. You know your body. You are most productive and have a good flow. I get up about the same time and go to bed at about 4:00 -5:00. I enjoy my quiet time at night where I have time to contemplate my day and my life and when I wake up in the morning I feel refreshed and off to a brand new start. So I like the contrast between them both. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. You are a beautiful breeze on a warm day.

      I would like to try to get up early in the morning but I find that I like the nighttime more so instead I stay up pretty late and then the earliest I get up is around 10.

      It is pattern we go through to sleep and get up and continue each day. If you do not have enough sleep it is difficult to be happy and upbeat. I like your poem it means a lot in such moments.

      Early mornings have become such a routine over the years that now sleeping in a little longer becomes a struggle. Cute poem.
