How to Get Through to Dawn

I was tired

But not sleepy

Finally surrendered

And got up

Creaky like, not happy to be awake

I tried to doze in my chair

But I can’t sleep sitting up

Even on that red-eye flight I took to Corfu

With my daughter

While she dreamed against the window

I was wide awake.

On that trip I learned

The best way to greet the morning

After a sleepless night

Is to cry out

How beautiful the light is, let’s go for a walk or

A drive

Let’s swim in the sea

Let’s have an aperitif and talk

Over breakfast.
