A POEM FOR MOMS AND DADS

A POEM FOR MOMS AND DADS
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for my sanity to keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
I'm pretty sure I'll lose my mind.
I pray I find a little quiet,
Far from the daily family riot.
May I lie back -- not have to think
about what they've stuffed down the sink,
or who they're with, or where they're at
and what they're doing to the cat.
I pray for time all to myself,
(did something just fall off a shelf?)
To cuddle in my nice, soft bed,
(Oh no, another goldfish -- dead!)
Some silent moments for goodness sake,
(Did I just hear a window break?)
And that I need not cook or clean,
(well heck, I've got the right to dream.)
Yes, now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my wits about me keep.
But as I look around I know,
I must have lost them long ago!
