Sleep, why have you forsaken me? You and I used to be BFFs - we'd spend so much quality time together on the weekends. I was godmother to your new puppy, we'd give each other manis and pedis, we'd do shots of goldschlager and play beer pong together while watching the Dukes of Hazzard. Remember how much time we spent together in college? So many hours, days, weeks even - in class, in the library... Where has our friendship gone? Yes, there are extenuating circumstances that are difficult to overcome. But you and me, we're stronger together than we are apart. If you wrap your Sleepy arms around my head a little tighter, you and I might get some old-school QT. Come back to me Sleep - don't mind these little people who are trying to scare you away because I will always love you.
Please come back, and not just for a visit, but for good. I still have your bunkbed set up with the glow in the dark stars just the way you like them.
