Waking Up


Waking up’s the best time of day.

What will I wear, what will I play?

It’s time to think of things to do.

First find my pants and missing shoe.


Wipe from my eyes the sleeps last trace.

I’ll brush my teeth, wash hands and face.

My bed’s made, teddy’s on pillow,

But one last hug before I go.


To the kitchen, mom will be there,

Making breakfast for us to share.

We chat about things to be done,

Some of it work, some of it fun.


Finish dressing put dreams away.

It’s time to start a brand new day.

That’s why waking up is the best.

But can’t do that without your rest.


The End

  1. Second childhoods begin at fifty-ish, I guess. I will also suggest “time for time-out” or “Ben to Sea”, both guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
    PS. my wife is a retired ER doc so I understand your need for occasional humor.
    Thanks, Steve K
