Rookie (The Mitten)

SEEPY TIME


9pm, the screaming starts
fighting sleep, the world might not wait

10pm, the Magic Boob only stunned you for a spell, a nap in the PM, a Parent's nightmare
“It's Seepy time, time to sleep” I say whispering in your ear
midnight... still fighting the sands...

the Bottle proves more affective tonight
the Bottle does the Boob's job tonight
“It's Seepy time, time to sleep” I say whispering in your ear
the calm comes.... doesn’t come easy but it always comes eventually
down and finally out, your hands protecting your face
3am, awake again
awake with a shriek
Diapers, bottles, or maybe bad dreams... “It's OK, Daddy's here”
Daddy's here with my smile, my song, a bottle and a bouncy knee
“It's Seepy time, time to sleep” I say whispering in your ear
your eyes wide awake with innocent curiousness
no agendas, no propaganda
the world is still here, same colors, same shapes

no sleep til 5am, no seepy time tonight
the Sun rises, you sleep.... Daddy knows it's only a few hours until we meet again
you with your shriek
me with my smile, my song, a bottle and a bouncy knee

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
