Another Day Done-A Poem


Another day done, the sun has set in the sky.

I tuck my boys into bed, as it is nighttime.

I whisper I love you and kiss their small heads.

Leave the light on a little the older one says.


I stand in the doorway a while.

Watching them drift off to dream land with a smile.

I hope that I am giving them all they need and more

Sometimes it is hard to always be the mom that they adore.


My journey of life has not been anything like planned

But I’ve learned, sometimes the best journeys are off the well-beaten path.

My best teachers have been my boys.

They show me all the little surprises that life has in store.


Never before did I notice the beauty is a bee

Or how a pile of worms can make boys so happy.

Little matchbox cars really hurt when they’re stepped on.

And boys, too, just want to have fun.


I never realized that doing the dishes was fun

Until a water war was declared on

That night when they wanted to help

I should have known that wouldn’t end well.


Being a mom is not always a piece of cake

But I’ll take this job any day of the week.

Hugs and kisses whenever I want them

Sometimes it is so hard to face the setting sun.


I want them to stay  little boys forever

And with each day that passes they become older

Soon they will be all grown up and have their own families

I will go from mommy to grammy.


Standing here in their doorway I hear them breathe heavily.

I know they have made it to slumber land, happily.

Another day is done now that they are fast asleep.

Another day is done but it is one that I wish I could keep.
