Sleepless Baby – Author A.M. Torres


As night fell again,

With spring snow, today,
He grabbed both his cars,

And ran off to play.
He won’t go to sleep,

He screamed when we tried

Exhaustion set in,

And I could just cry.


Days into night,

He still hasn’t slept,

Exhaustion set in

Drained as I wept.
A baby at four,

He runs in bare feet

Somehow he lasts

Looking so sweet.
I sat looking on,

Trying to write,
He said go to bed,

And I said goodnight.
