A poem for those on night shift

Not one of mine, but one I like a lot. I hate night shift, I dislike sleeping alone and at the opposite time to everyone else, I always feel quite lonely and sorry for myself. I also become lazy and lethargic, hence the stolen poetry.

All you who sleep tonight

Far from the ones you love,

No hand to left or right,

And emptiness above-

Know that you aren’t alone.

The whole world shares your tears,

Some for two nights or one,

And some for all their years.
