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!!!
