A Parent’s Prayer

(Funny Poems)

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 and 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.
