A Mommy's Prayer 

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!
