Sleepless

Sleepless

by: Rob Paquin

 

Up before the sun

Another sleepless night

Another day begun

Another chance to get it right

 

Another day of living

Another thing that could go wrong

Another sin to be forgiven

Another place I don't belong

 

And as the sun shall slowly travel

Across my clearest skies

I watch the world unravel

As another dream just dies

 

Yet still I chase that sun now

Unwilling ever to relent

Using all my grit and knowhow

With every effort spent

 

And when again it's time

For me to rest my head

There'll be no peace of mind

As I head off to my bed

    Some days we have for living
    And others just survive
    But we must keep on going
    Sometimes to stay alive.

    Some days the sun shines on us
    And others, just the rain
    We never know from day today
    Which?? happiness or pain.

    But we must keep on trying
    No matter what the cost
    And never think of quitting
    Or, surely, we’ll be lost.
