While They Sleep.

It’s eerie quiet.

They all sleep.

While they sleep.

I load and unload laundry,

Set autobrew for coffee,

Fold laundry,

Load dishes,

Wipe table,

Clean up kitchen,

Shhhh, Listen.

It’s eerie quiet.

They all sleep.

While they sleep.

I take a moment to breath.

Think.

Pray.

Empty lunch boxes,

Pick up clothes,

Pick up toys,

Balance checkbook,

Search houses for rent,

Delete emails,

I type,

While they sleep.

Good Night.
