I’ll Sleep When I Can

Many nights
I have expected
To fall asleep
Earlier
Than usual

And
That becomes
An easier objective
With each
Passing
Day.

I have
Doubled my
Sleep often

And still

Could likely
Stay in bed
Longer.

Certainly
There will
Come a time
When I can
Rest beside you

And
Slip readily into
A dream state
That others
Call suspension.

But
For now
I find it
Difficult

Not to
Look at you

And

Stay
Awake forever.
