Desperately tired – I can hardly move-
I’ve got to get going, get in the grove!
Meals to fix, errands to run-
None of that sounds like much fun!
My mate wakes me up – 2-3 times a night-
I can’t get back to sleep – try as I might.
I try to catch up during the day-
But he keeps asking me “are you OK?”
It’s not his fault he really can’t help it-
However one needs the sleep just to keep fit!
Please, Lord, let him sleep through this night-
I’m afraid I’ll get sick & that gives me a fright.
