Bed Time

Do you talk in bed?
Or do you read instead.

Or do you both lay there
In silence. Wondering where

Life had gone wrong.
Wedded bliss gone for a song.

What about those next door?
Do they talk or just snore.

Is their life that boring
Night taken up with snoring.

What about those in the next street
Do they mutter under the sheet?

Time in bed before sleep robs agility
A twilight time when mind lacks ability.

The time when the light is out
Is to find something to talk about.

And to go to bed with a kiss
Is something not to miss.

    Each one may have a special pattern of going to sleep! Some may pore over a book, some may watch a T.V programme, some, vacantly look into the dark, the prudent ones may plan for the next day and some may turn and toss in bed! Strange and varied are the ways of men! A delightful read!

    I'm an insomniac David, so I just lie there, trying to compose poems - but not always achieving. Good one.
