- What Matters
Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
The sun has set, and the moon commands
But sleep has not yet come.
Darkness fills the silence, and whispers
But my mind pounds like a drum.
Wind glides gently over water, calling softly
Yet still I lie here restless and awake.
Shadows emerge from hiding, telling me
Yet their advice I can't seem to take.
The street lamps light with a flicker, saying
But I toss and turn as if with a fever.
The constellations Orion and Big Dipper sing
But I really can't listen to either.
The planets change position in the sky, soothing
But my mind likes to play and have fun.
The fading stars try to stay alive, and urge
But it's too late; here comes the sun.
