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.
