I Lie Awake

I lie awake at night pondering how the day went. 

I consider the ups and downs, the highs and lows. 

What shall I say about the day?

Was it worthwhile or was it just okay? 

Did I do anything different any other way? 

As my body is asleep, my brain is awake preparing for tomorrow. 

My cortisol levels building up as night falls waiting for what's to follow. 

Another day is born and I am alive and well.

I think about what to expect in the room I dwell. 

I lie awake in my bed pondering how the day will go.

Only time can tell and only He can know.
