I Still Have Sleepless Nights

Sleepless Nights
by ~IamCo

Why do you want me 
have I not given you enough?

Why do you stop sweet slumber
from resting upon my eyes?

I have given birth and given
many a night thereafter,
now I pray that you let me be

I thought with age my rest was due
but you claim me as if I owe you

Oh, sleepless night please
take from another, to whom
sleep is not so precious

Moon, stars and heavens sing me a lullaby
let the night air cradle me in it's arms

May my thoughts drift away with the clouds
so I will have a sleepless night, no more

My son is 22 now
