THE MIDNIGHT HOUR:
It is three minutes past midnught
Here in the UK.
I went to bed at ten,
Tossed and turned and am back up again.
As usual it is raining outside,
Also blowing a gale.
So decided to write to you,
A pleasure which never fails.
What do you do when you can't sleep?
Stay in bed until sleep arrives?
Or get up and do something
Which will bring tiredness to your eyes.
I hope you all had a good Sunday,
Of course it was Valentine's Day too.
Did you get flowers and chocolates from your loved one,
Or a day out to admore the view.
Well I am now going to get a hot drink,
And back to bed I go.
See if sleep will come to me,
As my head touches the pillow.
