Haiku for Sleeping

Oh, good. Time to sleep
So I wait, my eyelids weigh
Hoping soon to dream


I wait, sleep teases
Plays it cool, takes its time now
Not one to rush in, it taunts


The clock gets louder
Cars pass outside decide to, too
Night turns up volume


1a.m. is when
Tomorrow's to-do list knocks
Thinks its turn has come


Look up to see 4
Leaves me with 2 more hours
of wishing for sleep

* *

Eyes open to voice
Memory of dream, keys lost
Sleep indeed did call
