Half Asleep – a poem by me

14 Apr

Half Asleep

Half Asleep
yet half awake,
I lie on my bed,
drifting on a lake.

The sounds that I hear,
sound ever so loud;
with my neighbour talking,
to what seems a crowd.

I hear my mother cooking
my brother’s birthday cake.
And that’s when I notice,
I’m still awake!

I listen to the cars,
as they pass quickly by,
and the noise from the rugby ground,
as someone scores a try.

I hear my brother Michael,
climb quickly up the stairs.
and hear my father talking,
but can’t catch what he says.

And suddenly everything’s quiet,
and I give a loud yawn;
not to open my eyes,
till the noise of dawn.
