I lie awake at two AM

Tired as the day seems long

Yet, quite restless, I am


I know in a few hours time

I shall have to be at school

And then, even more, shall I whine


But for now sleep is unfathomable

To lie still in bed long enough to sleep

Sadly enough, I am not able


I wish I were for the hours pass

At, seemingly, a much higher pace

Than if I lie awake counting minutes past


Yawing, I do quite often

It is a sign of needed sleep

Maybe I shall try counting dolphins

This was one I wrote late at night because I couldnt sleep.
