What is it that keeps you up tonight?
Some last minute work or an exam tomorrow?
A lover’s touch or the thought of one?
A new idea that cannot let you rest?
A mind that is tired but cannot rest?
Wanting to fall asleep to the music of the waking birds?
A book that you just cannot put down?
The desire to avoid bad thoughts and sleep only when your mind is too exhausted to think?
The excitement of something wonderful going to happen tomorrow?
A sense of disjoint with the world around you?
The desire to sit near the window and breathe in the cool perfumed air?
To feel that in the night, time is yours and not you in time?
Or simply because you like staying up at night?
