I will not pretend that I wrote this but I thought it was a great little poem for everyone.
A Woman's Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity
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
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.
from time all to myself
(did something just fall off a shelf?)
To cuddle with my nice, soft bed
(Oh no, another gold fish
Some Silent Moments for goodness sake
(Did I just hear a window break?)
And that I need not cook
(Well what the heck, I can 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!
