Then Comes the Night

When the the sun goes down and the day is done
Some battles are lost and others have been won
The toils of the day has gotten the best of you
Ready for another chance to start your life anew

Night is getting closer you can hardly see the light
Troubles were many so you gave it all your might
Hoping to make it through the long and lonely night
Things look dark and dreary but soon will be all right

The stars light up the night and twinkled in the skies
Sleep crept up slowly with lots of blinking of the eyes
You tossed and turned all night then got up out of bed
Filled with the worries of just what might lie up ahead

You went and got back into bed and finally went to sleep
Then slept until daylight and opened the shutters to peep
Overcome with great joy that you made it through the night
A good nights sleep is a blessing and more than just a fight

    After a weary day comes the night, blessing us with rest and sleep, that we get out of our bed fresh and energetic to take up the challenges of everyday! Sleep is the balm for tired minds! A sleepless night is enervating, but a night of sound sleep is invigorating! Enjoyed this great write! !
