A poem by the beautiful and endlessly energetic C:
Of course I’m awake,
Why wouldn’t I be?
This life still holds so much in store for me!
I’ve never seen a zebra or swam at the beach,
Built a sand castle or tasted a peach,
Climbed up a ladder or gone down a slide,
Hopped on a tricycle and taken a ride,
Colored a picture or picked a flower,
Yet you want me to nap every day for an HOUR?
I have dogs to chase and books to chew,
How can I rest when there’s so much to do?
So come on, strap me in to my sister’s toy jeep,
I have miles to go before I sleep!
