Hour 4

The baby is asleep

Now is her time

To take a nap

Take a shower

Cook a meal

Do the laundry

Eat hot food

Read a book

Watch a show

Call a friend

Wash my hair

The list goes on

She can’t get up

She can’t choose

And time runs out

Baby needs her mommy

She doesn’t have the strength

Yet she will go

Feed, burp, change, soothe

As the cycle starts anew

Night will bring the suppressed tears

And day will just come and go
