My Bed is a Boat
















My bed is boat
On which I float
To the land of Fast Asleep

Up high on the mast
My sails are cast
I will softly slumber deep

My eyes gently closed
I snooze, I doze
And nothing's as it seems

I steady the wheel
Keep an even keel
I'm the Captain of my dreams

To the hull I go
Quietly below
Rest a while, eight hours or more

Til at first daylight
As the sun shines bright
I arrive at Morning Shore

I really liked that. Though as an insomniac, it's hard for me to relate. :)
