Now I Shall Sleep - Poem by Paul Fowler

Now I shall sleep,
My work here is done,
Everyone knows that,
The night shift's not fun.

Now I shall rest,
Me and some others,
Have kept you all safe,
Whilst under your covers.

Now I shall dream,
Get away from it all,
For just a few hours,
Before I answer another call.

The night shift's not fun,
Alertness I must keep,
But when the work's done,
Now I shall sleep.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is primarily dedicated to all my colleagues in the emergency services; but equally it goes to anyone that has to work nights
