They arrived and they sapped and conquered -
Two little bodies needing watchful care
Moments filled with action, moody emotions,
Lessons forgotten, and reminded notions…
Been there done that, doing ‘it’ again – enjoying
Teaching, playing and sharing…but
I’m a tad older now and energy drawn
Must be renewed between dusk and dawn
When was the last time I stayed up late?
It seems now though there are more times
When my day includes little ones on ‘my plate’
That my eyelids are not up much past eight!
