Goodnight Today

Goodnight Today-
I’m done with you.
I’m finished,
Its over-
The day is through.
My pillow is calling-
The kids are asleep
It’s time to quit stalling,
The dishes will keep.

Aw, who am I kidding?
The house is a clutter.
An unending mess-
A revolving door…
Of dishes
And toys
And laundry galore.

The life of a mother-
So tired…
Can’t think.
Drowning in chaos…
I need a drink!

Goodnight Today-
I’m done with you.
I’m finished,
Its over-
The day is through.
Done all that I can-
I’m going to rest.
I’ll try again tomorrow
I’ve done my best.

I’ll kiss my babies
And whisper “Sleep Sweet”
Tickle their face
And tuck in their feet.
Crawl into bed
And close my eyes tight
Saying a prayer-
“Please sleep through the night!”

We’ll fill up tomorrow-
Just like today,
With play forts
Adventures,
Messes and clay.
I will ignore the house-
Play with my kids;
And know in the end
What was important-
I did.

Goodnight Today-
I’m done with you.
I’m finished,
Its over-
The day is through.
