DEAR TIRED EYES,

 

HOW DO I SLEEP
SOUNDLY
WHEN THE WORLD
IS VIBRANT
AND BURSTING WITH
COLOR?

 

HOW DO I SLEEP
AT ALL
WHEN I MISS SO MUCH
AS MY EYELASHES
FLUTTER SHUT?

 

HOW DO I SLEEP
KNOWING
THAT I HAVE
SO MUCH TO DO
AND SO MUCH TO SEE?

 

HOW DO I SLEEP
AT ALL
WHEN MY EYES WEIGH
SO HEAVILY AND THE
WORLD WEIGHS MORE?
