a child’s smile

Happy Mother's Day to all of us who do what we can for our children.

a child's smile

alarm sounds, drag out of bed
what is the weather like today
clothes, makeup, hair

the house awakens
off to the kitchen
eggs, bacon, cereal, toast, coffee, juice
cleanup, grab the bags, out the door

the commute: school, work
desk, keyboard, monitor, phone
lunch, salad, water
papers, typing, aching neck, calls
the commute: work, school

homework, dinner, game day
baths, ironing, exercise, shower

exhausted



smile, pray
tomorrow is just another day
sleep
