Bedtime

“Good night you two, I love you. 

You can stay up,

Just promise me you’ll stay in your room, okay?” 

Father said 

 

To the pirates searching for lost treasure 

To the mermaids saving sinking ships 

To the astronauts exploring new galaxies 

To the veterinarians curing sick animals 

To the chefs serving 5 star meals 

To the models strutting down the catwalk 

To the race car drivers breaking world records 

To the engineers building bridges across oceans 

To the explorers discovering new lands 

 

To the two children, 

Who had much bigger plans than staying in their room that night.
