TOSSIN AND TURNING:

I do have a son called Robert
known as Bobby as a child.
TOSSIN AND TURNING:
On Tuesday night sleep evaded me.
However much I closed my eyes.
How many times I got out of bed.
To look at the nightime skies.

I began to feel unwell.
As the night progressed.
So come four am.
I got up and decided to get dressed.

I did some boring chores,
Still not the solution I fear.
Oh for a good night's sleep.
Something to me so dear.

Yesterday I felt totally unwell.
Hence my absence on line.
I'f I hadn't tossed and turned so much,
I would have been feeling oh so fine.

Last night however,
I slept like a log.
I'm up and rairing to go.
For a walk.....not a jog.

Have you every endured sleepless nights?
It's something I'd not reccomend.
But I'm back today none the worse.
Happy Thursday to you I send.
