Sacchariferous Vagary

It’s time for bed…

You say it’s too early,
that the sun is still awake
so you should be too.

I tell you that you better get to bed
before the boogie man gets you.

I beat my chest like a gorilla…

You scream and laugh while running up the stairs,
into your room,
and belly flop into bed.

You laugh and I smile.

I tuck you in,
sweet dreams are my with
as I kiss your forehead
and you kiss my chin.

Soft, comfy snuggles
as you drift into sleep smiling.
