Sleepless Nights…

In Memory of My Grandfather - Don Bettis

After a death in the family
people need time to vent
and to clear their head,
that's time well spent...
Well see me, im a lil different
Cuz everyday I find the time
to think about life and read
between the lines...
I cant count the times
when I would yearn, what it
would be like when its my turn.
Close my eyes and I would learn,
all of lifes secrets and in return
I would meet my savior &
rest among the clouds...
or will I burn?...
Mind racing,
thoughts change with every blink...
At nite I cant close my eyes,
I cant go to sleep...
