Sweet Slumber

Rhyming Poetry

My favorite time of day,

is actually late at night.

The time I get into my jammies

and turnout the bedroom light.

I snuggle down into my bed,

underneath the covers.

My eyes adjust to the room

as the darkness hovers.

Its the time I use for thought

and issues of the day.

Sort them all out in my mind

then take some time to pray.

My eyes grow heavy as I lie there

counting sheep by number.

Hugging my pillow closely,

I fall into such sweet slumber.
