Routine Before Sleep

The day is folding into darkness
Lights extinguish to dark rooms
All but one remains near bed
Outside door locked tight against the night
One final door shut to let me sleep tonight
Into bed I hide under sheets
Almost wrapped tightly in cocoon
Arm reaches to turn off last light
Now all in darkness as I sleep a goodnight
