“BEDTIME PRAYER!” a.k.a.: “Beddie-Bye-Bye-Time Need NOT Include Unfinished Phone Calls!” 🙂 Wednesday: Karaoke Day + Poetry Gathering Today – The Last Day of February 28, 2018, for consideration!
A phone’s not (necessarily) loving – and a phone’s not (necessarily) kind!
WHEN – a phone doth seek to “bind,”
When a phone controls our sleep pat-terns,
Then, a phone it only hurts and burns,
A case in point (quite sad, I think):
A call did blink!
We spoke a while, BUT,
IT WAS TIME, TO GO TO BED AND END THE RHYME,
Of a fine day – of ac – ti – vity,
This time is good for “prep,” you see,
A topic touched upon (before), I think,
BEFORE GOOD REST, PREPARE TO SINK,
Into a blessed slumber here,
In our bed, with my dear!
I like to wash and rinse and say,
A few kind words, to end the day,
To think about the day to come,
BUT NOT to worry – or sip the rum!
Relax the body, relax the mind,
Prepare to dream and do be kind,
To self and others – who shared the day,
This, I think, is how to pray!
“One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.”
