Shade of Hope

Tick, tock, tick.
The clock ticks on.
Any minute
My sleep will be gone.
Ray by ray,
The sun brings the day.
It comes to take
My rest away.
Hour by hour,
Minute by minute.
My day won’t have time
For a nap in it.
Shade by shade,
The shadow of the night,
Brings me hope
That I’ll be out like a light.
