When I turn in and lie perfectly still,
I wait for the sleep to come, and it will,
Sometimes it takes time, maybe an hour,
I fixed this by using my brainpower.
I told my mind that “Here is the deal.
We’ll lie here inert from head to heel.
Even if we don’t fall under very soon,
Which might happen once in a blue moon,
Still counts as sleeping for the me the next day.”
My mind agreed and relaxed, flew away.
If I do this, my mind can roam free,
There is no stress when we thus agree.
The fun thing is, that it helps me crash,
Moisting up the pillowcase in just a flash.
Who knew only an agreement was needed?
If I remember, it’ll never be unheeded.
