Postpartum Lullaby

Postpartum Blues

I lie awake,

I lie awake, but not quite awake,

I lie awake, but not quite awake, Deprived of sleep,

I lie awake, but not quite awake, Deprived of sleep, You get my drift.

I drift in thoughts,

I drift in thoughts, I drift away.

I'm here,

I'm here, I'm there,

I'm here, I'm there, I'm everywhere,

But I drift away...

I close my eyes,

I close my eyes, and rest my eyes,

I close my eyes, and rest my eyes, But sleep doesn't take me.

I take deep breaths in,

I take deep breaths in, And then out,

I take deep breaths in, And then out, But I still linger,

I take deep breaths in, And then out, But I still linger, Whether to retreat or not retreat,

I take deep breaths in, And then out, But I still linger, Whether to retreat or not retreat, And ponder whether or not,

I take deep breaths in, And then out, But I still linger, Whether to retreat or not retreat, And ponder whether or not, The day has ended.

For if there should be more episodes,

For if there should be more episodes, I like awake,

For if there should be more episodes, I like awake, And grow weary.

For if there should be more episodes, I like awake, And grow weary.

Like Prufrock on ether,

Like Prufrock on ether, The misty smell, the dry spells...

Like Prufrock on ether, The misty smell, the dry spells... Blurring my reality.

Sweet sleep,

Sweet sleep, Take me.

Sweet sleep, Take me. Melt away my sorrow,

Sweet sleep, Take me. Melt away my sorrow, Numb away the pains on end,

Sweet sleep, Take me. Melt away my sorrow, Numb away the pains on end, Take me off to Neverland.

But the littlest of the rustlings,

But the littlest of the rustlings, Gets me up on cue.

And I like awake,

And I like awake, Not quite awake,

And I like awake, Not quite awake, Lullubying her my blues...
