Back to childhood: Sometimes it's the little things that help the most


The children are tucked all snug in their beds
The bathwater runs with billowing steam
My book and my cookies so near to my reach
It’s finally time for my stay-awake dream.

I soak away tension and lie in the tub
The bathwater runs with billowing steam
The stress of the day slides into the bubbles
I close my eyes and feel I am redeemed

The time is for Mummy, the hour now mine
Silent are voices that have clung all day
My book and my cookies so near to my reach
Sometimes I wish in my tub I could stay.

I munch on goodies and study my book
I feel myself floating on a gentle stream
The tension inside slowly dissipates
It’s finally time for my stay-awake dream.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
