4 am Blues

I lay on my back staring up at the ceiling listening to my hubby's breathing... good Lord he's NOT snoring for a change!
But then why am I awake?

What is it about my brain/ body that I cannot stay in the land of slumber?
I love to sleep, I love being curled up under my down duvet all snug and warm.
Then why am I awake?

There have been some new stresses to my life, suppose that could be it.
But they were not even in my head while I laid there.
Why am I awake?

I sit here at the computer staring at the screen not really thinking.
My eyes are heavy feeling oh so tired.
Am I awake?

My thoughts cloud over with my daily stresses, filling my head.
My stomach turns with all I need to still do.
I awake!
