Never Too Old
It’s late at night and I can’t sleep
there’s something wrong, just out of reach
Alarm is set, the dog is bathed
laundry’s done, the bills are paid
Kids are sleeping, their jammies on
lights are out, the dishes done
Yet something’s missing, out of place
I feel adrift, lost out in space
There’s so much danger, so easy to fall
and I’m the adult, in charge of it all
Then it hits me like a bomb
I’m just scared, I want my Mom!!!
