I have been reading "The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio" which is full of little jingles and poems. So little rhymes have been popping into my head lately. Last night, Caleb kept waking up for some reason, not because he was hungry, apparently he just wanted to say hello. So, I wrote this at 4am. Evelyn Ryan (the lady in the book) is much better at poetry than me, but I hope you enjoy.
"My Darling, Dearest Caleb friend,
This waking up at night must end.
These cooing sounds sure are sweet,
But honestly kid, I am beat.
Close those little eyes my dear,
And rest well knowing that I am near.
Don't even try to fight,
I will turn off this light.
I need to get more rest,
So stop being a cute pest.
We are only a room apart.
Goodnight, AGAIN, little sweetheart."
