bedtime tonight

tonight as I tucked him in,

my eight year old son,

his eyes lookin’ wide awake

my eye lids feelin’ heavy

he said, “My body clock

is on Tokyo time.”

well, that would explain it

I stretched out

beside him

and whispered

I love you

close your eyes

think happy thoughts

have good dreams

I’ll see you

in the mornin’

I may have dozed

for just a bit

fleece pjs on now

warmin’ up some

my pillow

is callin’

goodnight
