An Exhausted Mother’s Prayer

Mother with child - Rays of Wisdom - Parents & Children - An Exhausted Mother's Prayer

 Now I lay me down to sleep
And pray that my sanity I shall keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
It won’t take long till I lose my mind.
 
I pray to find some peace and quiet,
Far away from my family’s usual riot,
For lying down without having to think
About what they may be putting down the sink,
Or who they are with and what they are at,
And the things they could be doing to our cat.
 
I pray for time all to myself,
But lo!
Did something just fall off a shelf?
Time for resting in my nice soft bed,
Unaware that they’re painting one of my curtains red.
How much I’d give for a silent moment!
Oh, for goodness sake,
Did I just hear a window break?

I dream I need neither cook nor clean.
Well, everybody has the right to dream.
 And so I lay me down to sleep
And pray for my wits to keep,
But when I look around I know
I must have lost them long ago.
