Ah, sleep. My lovely friend, you are my blissful savior. For months you have evaded me, trickling in and out like a stealthy lover. Yet tonight you arrived on my doorstep to spend the night, lolling beside me on my bedsheets, holding me close to your bosom. Each time you have graced me with your spiriting presence you removed my mind, carrying it off to unknown vistas. Your visit has restored my thoughts, revived my spirit. Please do not leave me again–my heart and mind will break without you.
