A Goodnight Poem

Here’s a little goodnight poem that you may wish to share with children or even adults.

Sweet Dreams

You look tired,
you need some rest,
A good night’s sleep,
is often best.

I wish you a deep
and truly sweet dream,
With a waterfall,
and a gentle stream.

Comfy white pillow,
and your warm soft sheet,
Will feel like heaven,
it’s surely a treat.

Hope you sleep,
in total piece,
All your concerns,
your mind shall release.

In the morning,
when you wake,
You’ll be ready,
to dance and shake.

A good night’s sleep is very important for us all, so that we may function properly during the day. It seems the average person is not getting enough sleep these days. I know that many of my friends and family only get about 4-6 hours each night.

Whenever I don’t get enough sleep, I notice that I’m like a zombie the next day. A good night’s sleep rejuvenates the body and mind, and we shouldn’t take it for granted. We’re not robots, we do need sleep, both quality and quantity.

7-8 hours is enough for me. Even though I prefer 8, I don’t always get that many. I just notice that I’m a million times much more effective at work when I do get my 8 hours. So when I hear stories about entrepreneurs that only sleeping 4 hours because they’re so busy, I just wonder about the effectiveness of their 18 hour workdays. I can probably do a better job in 8 or 10 hours, than they do during their 18 hour brain quenching marathons.

Now back to the goodnight poem. It’s meant to be a nice little gesture that you may want to read and share with a child or even someone much older. I actually plan on sharing it with my mom, because she’s one of those workaholic energizer bunnies, that just keeps on going and going. I hope it reminds her to get a good night’s sleep (she needs it and deserves it as well).
