Toddler Toes & Church Hymns

My son has pink eye and is having trouble sleeping. That, of course, means I'm having trouble sleeping too.

Toddler Toes & Church Hymns

I've been awake since 3am
With toddler toes in my chest
Listening to airy phlegm
And raspy snoring breaths.
I wish I could comfort him
And still get a little rest.
His constant moving, flailing limbs
Make the sheets a giant mess.
As the giant moon dims
And I lay here in my nest
I think of calming church hymns
And pray for the best.
