Sleep By Night
I finally plopped into my bed, feeling full and comforted.
The milk had tasted good, with the chocolate cookie – it was just what I needed.
I thought about Tony’s mini speech. He was right, I admitted it, and I did need the rest.
Still, there were things pricking me at the back of my consciousness, and I couldn’t seem to get rid of them at all.
Again, I returned to tossing and turning until I got into a more comfortable position.
Much to my elation, my eyelids started drooping and I felt the faintest tug of the strings of sleep.
I closed my eyes, and lay still, bidding slumber to come.
I wonder what Grandma’s doing now… I thought; my ideas were slowing down, kind of like when you see something being put in slow motion.
I could practically feel my brain shutting down, and it was a welcome sensation.
I pulled the blanket up to my chest, and leaned back into the fluffy pillow, trying to ignore Lin’s snores.
And finally, I slipped into the realm of much needed sleep.
