A Typical Night - Poem by Jorelyn Leonard

I sleep to your breathing
I wake to your alarm
I cringe to your screaming
As I hug you for calm

Your sobs fade away
To the comfort that's found
Tickles are kept at bay
With laughter abound

You are awake half the night
Full of energy and zest
Try as I might
You just don't want to rest

You start snuggling in close
And drift back to sleep
Scrunching your nose
Now it is rinse and repeat

Topic(s) of this poem: children, motherhood, parenthood
