Pacing Tonight


I walked all night

Paced the kitchen

Spoke softly

Sang and even told stories

Still, I kept walking

Tried it all again

And again

To no avail

Could not get you to sleep

I washed your face

Changed your diaper

Picked you up

After two steps you were out

Sometimes it amazes me what puts you to sleep

Memoirs of a tried dad
