Need Some Sleep

I’m waiting for a Sunday
I’m wishing for some luck
Yes, I’m waiting for a Sunday
When there would be no work
For my weekend goes by
In the flash of an eye
And I don’t know why
That the harder I try
I just can’t get some sleep
I just can’t get some sleep
I just can’t get some sleep

Today is a Saturday
Lots of chores to do
When I’m done with all of them
I find myself some new
I find myself some more
What is wrong? I don’t know
But one thing’s for sure
That I’m feeling sad and sore
As I can’t get some sleep
As I can’t get some sleep
No I can’t get some sleep

Tomorrow is a Sunday
I’ve no hope in my heart
I’m gonna be working
Till my limbs fall apart
Mercy, I beg of you
I don’t know what I have to do
To spend a day not feeling blue
Just a day, not even two
All I need is some sleep
All I need is some sleep
All I want is some sleep
All I want is some sleep

  1. You might want to try praying about it, if you haven’t already. Then again maybe you’re working too much. Not trying to be mean, sometimes it’s changing the things you can but maybe don’t think you can.

  2. Sleep is hard for tired minds, tired bodies needing rest with tired minds can’t sleep. Tired minds search desperately for a sense of wakeness so they cannot sleep, I think. Powerful piece, thank you! 😊

  3. Got 3 hours last night. I left work early today, complaining of nausea. I lied, shouldn’t do that but now ironically I can’t sleep. Trying to take a nap.
    Excellent poem! 💖
