Insomniacs Prayer

Now I lay me...
down to sleep.
I pray that I'll rest...
if I count sheep.
So many nights...
I've spent wide awake.
Wishing for one...
moments break.
Away from awareness...
so I might dream.
Of sweet scented flowers...
near a cool mountain stream.
So to mister sandman and...
mistress night I pray.
That I'll close my eyes...
until the light of day.
