Sweet and tender the lullaby seems,
almost to long ago to remember the dreams.
Tossing and turning the night away,
those dream catchers kept the bad dreams astray.
Soft pillows and sheets kept us comfortably snug,
and to sleep all we needed was one big hug.
But now as we're older,
our dreams have become shorter.
We lay in bed for countless hours,
waiting for the alarm so we can take our showers.
How long can we stay awake?
I guess until we begin to shake.
Coffee is our best friend,
without whom it all might just end.
