Toss and turn, toss and turn! it’s another sleepless night.
I dozed off in my lounging chair while sitting there upright!
I woke up in the morning hours, so I got up and went to bed.
But I could not go back to sleep, so I tossed and turned instead.
When will I ever learn? I should not allow myself to sleep,
In my chair, chin on chest, slumbering very deep!
So here I am, back in my chair, hoping for a snooze.
Music playing, lights are dim, and I am not amused.
I can see what is ahead, later in the day.
After all my work is done, on my bed I’ll lay.
I am already looking forward, to that lovely little nap.
But now, I’ll recline in my chair, with an afghan on my lap.
My eyelids are getting heavy, my breathing begins to slow.
My chair is like a sedative, so off to dreamland I go!
