Dear Sleep,

I'm not sure why you left our house recently but i urge you to return immediately. We have been missing you terribly and wonder what we have done to make you abandon us (my son, and consequently, myself and my husband). We are bleary, subdued and foggy without you here. Please, come back to us at your earliest convenience. The sooner the better.
It would be in your best interest for you to return lest you be replaced by your rival (though by no means your equal)---coffee. Whatever we have done to make you leave so abruptly we would surely fix, if only you would visit my son again. He needs you in his life and is really missing your presence. Your influence is great and without your peaceful and calming manner, we are all shells of our former selves. I hate to sound desperate but Sleep, i love you. I need you. I want you deeply, fully, completely. So come back, come back, come back.

Your loving disciples,

The Bs
