Broken Sleep

Darkness all around
Sleep no longer my companion
A noise in my room
Wondering if I am alone
But of course no one else wakes at this hour

Then the sound of a bird
One single chirp – silence
Did this one little bird have the same fight with sleep

Roll over once more and resist the urge to open my eyes
Again – the bird – he still tries to break the silent darkness
A single note – then a small tune
Followed by a new note from the next yard
A duet in the darkness

My struggle to keep sleep with me is now lost
The birds let me know a new day begins
One to fulfill my desires
