Exhausted but not tired

Free but still shackled

Lights all around you

You close your eyes

Awake but still without rest

Lights have gone away

Silence surrounds you

You close your eyes

A new ceiling welcomes you

Friends have come around

Scent of dogs is near

You close your eyes

Morning light comes ’round again

Missing dreams once more

A soft touch nearby

You don’t open your eyes.
