Naps Gone Bye

+ enlarge

Oh my …

Darling child
loves the blue skies
refuses to close her eyes
must jump and play.

Mommy however
develops a nervous twitch
too much coffee
it’s a lousy crutch
where does she get her energy?

Whining begins
as six o’clock hits
nerves frayed
loosing my wits
what’s for dinner?

Counting the seconds
blessed bedtime
blankets arranged just-so
a story or a nursery rhyme
slumber finally makes its claim.

Mommy-Daddy time
we look forward to the quiet
sleepy Mommy eyes
too tired to fight it
zombified at eight o’clock.

Oh child … Mommy still needs your nap!
