Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray my sanity to keep.

For if some peace I do not find, I’m pretty sure I’ll lose my mind.

I pray I find a little quiet

Far from the daily family riot

May I lie back — not have to think

about what they’re stuffing down the sink,

or who they’re with, or where they’re at

and what they’re doing to the cat.

I pray for time all to myself

(did something just fall off a shelf?)

To cuddle in my nice, soft bed

(Oh no, another goldfish — dead!)

Some silent moments for goodness sake

(Did I just hear a window break?)

And that I need not cook or clean —

(well heck, I’ve got the right to dream)

Yes now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray my wits about me keep,

But as I look around I know

— I must have lost them long ago!
