Sleep

the-sleeping-beauty

Why is it when we lie down at night to get some sleep

Our mind won’t shut down so our eyes can peep

And then when the magic hour arrives for us to wake

A few more zzzzzzzz’s we wish to take

Is it our age and body that is the culprit

Or perhaps our mind and all that is in it

Just one time I would like to lie down at night

And be off to sleep without a fight

Today I’ll work myself hard and fast

So that when my head hits the pillow I’ll sleep at last

About iglengel

Welcome to my blog: I retired in September of 1996 after twenty-five years as an Underwriting Manager (and one year with a smaller insurance company) and have written blog postings on the website Retirement-online.com prior to setting up this Word Press free site. Having retired almost twenty years ago I have experienced my own retirement transition. I survived and you will too. Oddly enough, now that I have more time, I am discovering various things about myself that I would not have imagined myself doing in retirement. Why does it take so long for, we as individuals, to stop and think about ME!? Join me as I share with you some of the shenanigans we have been up to since retiring. Retirement is and can be a whole lot of fun. Welcome to my site – remember – retirement is not the destination we are seeking – it is the journey! I encourage you to visit often, provide comments, ask questions and add your own insights. We are all on this journey together.

      Did you get a chance to read the one I posted Sunday? Curious to know your thoughts. Keep in mind, my overall goal is to make one smile upon reading my wild and crazy rants and raves, or short stories such as it may be.

  2. So true. It made me smile since I know the feeling well.
