I awoke lightning and thunder
Had made me gasp for breath
My head in the blanket and under

The storm quickly passed over
My dogs were yelping
I laughed as I threw back the cover

My heart was torn and broken
I had not slept for days
My aches and loneliness wasn't spoken

As I tried to slip back to sleep
My thoughts and emotions
Stirred and wouldn't keep

So I now was to be blurry eyed
No longer could I sleep
Exhaustion, I was fried

Come time to arise
I had just fallen asleep
The kids began to vocalize

Mom mom MOM
Its morning, wake up
Come on MOM
