Think Sleep


Thinking tonight
Tonight as I lay here and cannot sleep
I think of what my mother has taught me
I tried to get to sleep by counting sheep
My trouble is there are no sheep to see
When the sandman is saying no sleep yet
 And I'm so tired, I take my mom's advice
She taught me a trick I will not forget
If I really want to sleep shut my eyes

Note: We have a couple's marriage story about this. I don't ever remember my mother teaching me but once when I could not sleep Mrs. Jim told me to close my eyes. I acted as if I had never heard or known of this help before. It has been a joke between us for many, many years now. "Oh yes, I must close my eyes."
