this is a poem for dads and moms
from kids who love them.

dads and moms poem

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray 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're stuffing 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!

So true to life, John, and funny too! But I feel, moms and dads worry about things that may not happen and all of a sudden have to put out fires that rise from nowhere! A bigger issue solves many festering smaller ones! siva

This was such a great read John, and a plaintive prayer from many a mum and dad..Loved the humour!
