69. I Love ... getting up in the middle of the night.

I should clarify.

I love a good night's sleep
for sure.

But on those inevitable nights
when it
doesn't come,
I love it 
when I can convince myself
to get 

I make myself
a cup of coffee,
light candles,
put on soft, relaxing music,
grab a blanket
and a book
to read 
or to write in,
I savour
the dark,
the quiet,
the solitude,
the fact
that the only other thing
that I could
or should
be doing is 

I'm not.
So rather than toss and turn and fuss,
I love it when
I just get up
and spend the hours
in pleasure,
and confidence
that I will sleep again
another time.
