Sleeping Children

Sleeping children please don't wake
Mommy has had a very long day
Sleeping children please keep dreaming
Rest your minds for another day of scheming
My little babies stay aslumber
So mommy can rest unencumbered
Sleeping children please stay quiet
You know how mommy craves her silence
 Sleeping children please don't wake
You are the cutest babies on earth while in this state

Another one I'm not sure is done yet...

    This was a perfect read for me this morning. All 6 of my young grandchildren are here and it is sure peaceful while they are all sleeping.

    I can relate to this poem..I really love my baby girl..but after a long day i do yearn for my silence..Knowing im not the only one brings comfort-Charma

    It brings me back to the early years, enjoy the commotion it passes way to quickly. I enjoyed your poem, sometimes less is more, you let the audience fill in the blanks. I wouldn't change a thing. Well done.
