Hour 21: Desperate Longing

Desperate Longing

I long for blessed slumber

The softness of my bed

I long to go to dreamland

And rest my weary head.

I long to snuggle under blankets

Give in to sleep with a sigh

I long to hibernate right now

And close my gritty eyes.

  1. Congrats on doing the full marathon!!! I did the half and admire your tenacity! Love this poem and especially the ‘gritty eyes’. Looks like we were writing from the same place, as I am staying with my sister in Calgary. Once things open, it would be great to go for coffee!
