A Good Night’s Rest

How long has it been,
since I truly slept?
Come nightfall I linger,
accepting the invitation to rest ~
with mock alacrity.

Sure, I close my eyes,
and go through the motion of sleep,
but I am bereft of far more than simple rest.
Someone remind me,
of what it is to dream!
How sweet it would be,
to welcome the dawning of new day,
rather than dread the hours until sunrise.
