Another sleepless night
How much more can one do
To sleep, that's all I ask, is to go the whole night through
I'm not moaning , believe me! It's true
I just want to be rested, and not to feel so blue :-(
I woke up in bed,
With a thumping in my head
A pain in my neck,
I wish I was able to sleep more than an hour,
Not much too ask, just to sleep for eight hours.
It's always a struggle to get to my feet
But once I'm there , ok it maybe a feat !!
Then one foot in front of the other ,
With an ooh and an aahh !!! I'm out of the covers
Just a short distance to the loo.
It surely can't be that hard to do!!
Sometime it is, and sometimes it's not.!
Who would be me, well !! I certainly, would not !!!
Here in the bathroom , it should be so easy
To have a wash and dress, easy peasey :-)
Not so easy when you find it hard to stand,
Or even harder, when you can only use one hand ,
Now ! That's all done,,!!
My goodness it's taken so long
Just make up and hair ,
Oh never mind, who cares?
If I look like a mess
I'm not going out,!
Why on earth, did I dress?
What shall I do with my day at home?
There's so many things to do every day
There's the washing and the place to clean
Shame I feel like this , it's just not fair
Maybe I'll just try to brush my hair
So it's onwards and upwards, or so they say
As for my tremor , I hear you say ,,,
'However do you cope Every day'
It's not by choice, I can assure you
It gets on my nerves and makes me swear
But heh ! I should have got used to it !!
I've had it for years.!!!!
I find my days , are all the same
Such is life! who can I blame?
No-one can be blamed for how I am today
It's just what I was given , and I have to live with it !!
But I will do it MY WAY!!! - Today :-)
