Falling Asleep

My body is exhausted
but my brain is wide awake
reminding me of all the things
that I need to do tomorrow
and all the things
that I didn't do today

My brain makes up stories
as I wait for sleep to take me
brilliant stories that turn into dreams
and I never realize that I fell asleep
until it's time to wake up
and start the day
