Zzzzzzzz is all I want

Bone-weary, shattered, knackered and sore
I’m tired I’m bleary
Could sleep on the floor
I feel so exhausted. What a day
What a night
Or a lack of a night
– Yes I must look a sight!
My eyes are dry and burning
And fused in my head
My skin is crawling, itching
I just want my bed
I thought I could do this
I knew I’d survive
It’s not forever, I’ll endure it
Sure at least I’m alive.
But my battery is not charging
My energy stores gone
My sense of humor depleting
As each night has gone on.
I know that I love her
More than life itself
And I may just end proving that
With the loss of my health.
She catnaps for Ireland!
A wee doze here and there
Keeps her wound like a watch
And alert as the care
Of the President’s security
On hostile ground
– she’s made me a wreck
And mentally unsound.
I’m falling to pieces
Can’t restitch my head
Unless I catch a few Zzzzs
Now I’m heading to bed.


Nothing prepared me
Nothing I read
Nobody told me
No matter what they said
Knowing it could happen
Didn’t realise
How the tiniest thing
Could have changed our lives.

Two curious eyes
Follow each move
Ears cocked to every sound
Head twist to groove
Mouth falls in a soft ‘oh’
Then breaks into a grin
At a face she knows
Just where to fit in.

Intelligent pools
Drink every detail
Learning and listening
As I sing or tell tales.

Then that miracle moment
From when I’ll never be free
Two pudgy arms lift
– and she reaches for me!!!
