What I Need

Poor man,
he wants money.
Rich man,
he wants more.
Old man,
he wants time.
Young man,
wants to get in the door.
So many wants and needs,
some shallow, and some deep.
But what I really need,
is some sleep!
I’ve been running for oh so long,
and there is so much left to do.
Yet of all these things I need,
I really want to snooze.
Birds have nests,
and flowers,
Bears they have their dens.
If there is any rest for the weary,
won’t you please,
tell me when?
If I was given the whole world,
and had it laid at my feet,
still what I would need.
is some sleep.
