There was a time


I would fall asleep

to the sweet lullabies


 frogs and crickets

the songs of these creatures would

lull me into a dream state

and in the morning I would awake

to the beautiful melodies

 of my

feathered friends

each morning I would stir

in my sleep and pull the covers

over my head

 as my feathered friends were persistent and

aroused me from my dream state

much to early

now when I go to sleep

there are no sweet lullabies

of the frogs or the crickets

that beautiful sound has been replaced

by a freight train running through my


replaced by the terrible racket called tinnitus

that loves to cause ringing in my head

and is especially loud

when all the world is quiet

and in the morning

I now

 awake to the sounds


 swishing, ringing and banging

how I miss

the beautiful lullabies of the frogs and the crickets

and the beautiful melodies

of my

feathered friends
