Time goes by and no one hears my cry.
I’m tired, I’m tired, so tired I could die.
Kids nag, kids pester. After time all this begins to fester.
God gives me strength. God teaches me to endure.
For what reward, I am not sure.
Send me a message, please make it clear.
The reason, I need to hear!
Another quarrel in the midst.
Patience too easy to resist. Count to 10. Settle the fight.
Sleep deep and well tonight. It all begins again at daylight.
