Favorite Quote:
"If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you made me smile, I would have the whole night sky in the palm of my hand."

Oh sleep where have you been throughout the week?
My body craves her bed for its embrace
For everyday I work til I am weak
Fatigue has aged the wrinkles on thy face
But hour after hour have I toiled
My mind shuts down and hands begin to shake
I drag my deadpanned feet across the soil
I try to do as much as I can take
And when the sun goes down I can expire
I'm snug under the blankets on my head
If nothing more, it's sleep I must acquire
My body numbs and sinks as if it's led
I close my eyes, and dreams begin to form
Then drifts to sleep on pillows soft and warm
