Me Time
2/28/2015

“Waydup Momma, Waydup!”
A little voice whispers
If I don’t move an inch
Pretend to sleep unaware
The nose pressed to my face
A finger in my nose
Might go away, I think
“Ah oping you eyes, Mom”
A snoring noise might fool
the pillow may save me
Another body stirs
“I’m hungry Mom.  Momma.  MOM!”
Two rally against one
No, the day is too young!
A little me times two
“Can I have an orange?”
“Can’t. You ate the last one,”
I fed them yesterday.
Always with the feeding
“Appo?” The little one pleas.
“Go get a banana,”
The bed empties at once
A knee in my back, Oof!
A a foot kicks my calf, Ow!
An argument; a yell
The cat purrs I am doomed
Drowned noise with a pillow
Dream threads have gone away
My time is shared and split
Not a moment alone
The bed sinks; giggles fly
“Here Momma one for you,”
“Ah nana for du mom!”
I eat under pillow
I grunt and smile inside
Surrounded by me time
