My heart races, my brain pounds.
Nothing can start to calm me down.
Hours upon hours I ruminate,
Fleeting and separate thoughts flood my mind.
Why is it during these stressful times,
Sleep eludes me and the world keeps spinning?
It just keeps going as I walk the midnight floor.
I force myself back to bed, but it keeps on,
Until finally, a happy memory floods into me.
Why does my mind go back to that one moment?
Is it truly the most blissful memory I have?
While my heart is racing still, my mind slows,
Savoring each moment my mind plays.
Then finally, I calm down, feeling warm
From my extremities to my core.
One question remains, do you remember too?
Then I finally find peace and fall asleep.
