When time for sleep, I’m not sleepy.
Something is wrong somewhere.

I am tired, I am sleepy

Please stop talking to me

I just want to sleep right away

Not at night, but in the day

Sleep on any table, any chair

I just want to sleep now, anywhere

I don’t need a a spring mattress

I don’t need a pillow or bolster

I don’t need a blanket or comforter

I just need a small space, any corner

    I can sleep pretty much anywhere like a dog would, be it the stairs (once) or the couch (almost daily)… Good night and sweet dreams to you! :)

    this is such a lovely poem and the little illustrations and photos make it so cute and enjoyable. it says it all really that how important is sleep. when it comes, it comes anywhere, i love the dog in the pyjama suit and the baby standing and sleeping on the shelf too. :)

    This corresponds to me very well :) I can sleep anywhere, just anywhere :) My record was when I fell asleep on three chairs put together :)

    Cute and funny pictures. Anyway, I got the feeling that you were writing about me. These past two weeks or so I have totally switched days/nights. I cannot fall asleep whole night and then fall asleep in the morning after the sun goes up …
