I guard my sleep

as though my life depended on it

setting a watch

powering down

beginning a ritual

well in advance

I set guardians at the gate

an aggressive do not disturb

waving a sign

for all to stay away

as my body seeks healing


I guard my sleep

like riches buried away

clinging to the hours

that bring me back to life – Caroline A. Slee
