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!
