Where you sleep

Updated: Oct 27, 2019

You’re bedroom is painted blue Covered with Disney characters Your favorite books and toys are all there But none of that matters

You don’t want to sleep in your room You tell me that it’s broken You’re happy though to play in there But sleeping isn’t going to happen

You want to sleep in my bed You promise to make room for Daddy You say you won’t talk when you wake up You just want to sleep with Mommy

You fall asleep in an instant

Making me promise that I won’t leave You squeeze my hand so tightly So tight I feel my heart squeeze

I wish I knew what to do

I want you to enjoy your room To push you to sleep in there hurts you I’ll figure it out for you; one day; soon
