Waking


My secret way of waking is like a place to hide.
I'm very still, my eyes are shut.
They all think I am sleeping but
I'm wide awake inside.

They all think I am sleeping but I'm wiggling my toes.
I feel sun-fingers on my cheek.
I hear voices whisper-speak.
I squeeze my eyes to keep them shut
So they will think I'm sleeping BUT
I'm really awake inside - and no one knows!
