I wake, 1:30 a.m…

The random song, the conversation, the fight, the dog, work, life…it wont stop

2:30 a.m…it wont shut off.

I toss, I turn.  Inhale…Exhale…

Count sheep…pray…try to stay awake…medicine

Nothing works…

Open the crate, she’s my savior.

The warmth of her chest against mine instantly calms me down

On the bed, she presses against me like we are litter mates.

The lick of the face

5:30 a.m….finally
