Another interrupted night
Another day half-zombified
Concentration all but gone;
Tempted to just drift along.
No will to attempt what needs doing,
Yet worth it for that heavenly viewing
Of little faces filled with glee,
As they bounce upon my knee.
Eyes full of wonder, taking in
An ordinary mundane thing.
Seen afresh its beauty glows
As they turn to the one who knows
And ask for confirmation
(And a simple explanation)
of this magical delight
that sets their world alight.
So please another sleepless week,
with head that aches and joints that creak,
If it means more of these joys,
From our little girl and boys.
