Tired Eyes, Long Days

Tired eyes
Long days
Locked down
Strange ways

Endless, flying
Happy, crying
Trying to stay sane
New but mundane

Family time
None of my own
Want to go out
Want to stay home

Keeping you close
Holding you tight
Your every need
Morning and night

A brother, a sister
Trying to settle
Lucky, grateful, occasionally hateful

Growing fast
Bigger, stronger
Iso baby a little longer

Everything waits
For you outside
Standing still
A world so wide

A slow beginning
Take your time
We’ve got forever
Child of mine
