Insomnia

gets up in the night to cry

my sleep is being disturbed

wont tell me why but these

disruptions must be curbed

 

I find her downstairs in tears

hugging herself as if in pain

last night it took three hours

I dont want to see it again

 

in her eyes a degree of guilt

something preys on her mind

deep-rooted fits of remorse

as if for someone she pined

 

what more does she want?

nice house cash in the bank

material possessions galore

yet its me she has to thank

 

phone just rang its Linda

wants me tomorrow night

might stay over again,spare

me from my present plight

Selfless acts of kindness never go unnoticed in the eyes of the universe.
To help others while you feel lost is to be admired.
