This Is What Happens When I Can’t Sleep….

I’m laying in bed and watching the clock,
I’m wondering if this pain is ever going to stop.

My head is pounding and I feel so sick as I lay,
Tears and frustration are how I begin each day. 

Regardless of the reasons of why I black out, 
It can be scary and frustrating to not be up and about. 

It’s not just a song – God’s still working on me,
But how long does it take – I want to be done already.

He’s forcing me to rely on him each and every day, 
And I don’t really like it when I don’t get my way. 

I know it’s His desire to fill my heart with pure joy,
But it’s not going to be easy if he keeps giving me all boys! 🙂

I really want to pout and cry – woe is me,
But there are so many blessings – why can’t I just see?

Now with 7 little kids – I’ve been blessed in abundance,
And I’ll never find anyone who could be a better husband.

I’m surrounded with people that I know love me and care,
I get notes of encouragement and am lifted up in prayer.

So I want to thank all of you for your outpouring of love,
It keeps me focused off myself – and on things from above.

This is what happens when I can’t fall asleep –
I start writing poems – better that then to weep!

SO – I don’t want to hear if this poem doesn’t really rhyme,
It’s 3 in the morning – the sun hasn’t even started to shine!

Now I’ll start working on one of my famous Top 10 Lists –
Just pray you’re not on it – or you’re going to get dissed!! 🙂

  5. So you are funny even late at night? I have watched you on the mic infront of the groups – didn’t know you had your wit 24 hours a day! 🙂 I know you’re hurting though – even through the humor. So many people are praying for you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do! You’re a brave girl – and I admire you so very very much.
