Three AM

It’s 3am.

I should be fast asleep

I am not.

I’ve tossed and turned in vain.

My stomach in knots.

The morning is still far off.

I await the grey of dawn.

Another day.

This is the longest I’ve been ill.

A lack of feeling whole.

It seems never ending

Will I ever be well again?

Will I ever truly sleep the night?

It’s 3am

I should be fast asleep.

I am not.

  1. It is so frustrating not being able to sleep. I pray you will be able to rest during day but most of all I ray you will have an overwhelming sense oh His peace.

  2. Commiserations! The darkest hour is just before dawn! So hard to toss and turn but sleep won’t come when you’re so tired. I remember your daughter telling me (when she was very much smaller) – an hour or so after going to bed – “I’ve forgotten how to fall asleep”! You know that feeling!
