The time of the day that’s bittersweet.
Resting our heads, eyes and feet.
Day’s not over much left to do.
Watch TV or go to the zoo.
I’m not tired, it’s not too late.
Just a few hours, that’ll be great.
I’ll clean my room, music down low.
Fold some laundry, put on a show.
So many things better than sleep,
Reading a book, taking a leap.
Or have a snack by candlelight.
Why must we always waste our night?
I’m not ready for bedtime yet.
I might miss things that I’ll regret.
Things are missed when you close your eyes.
Can’t see stars or watch the sunrise.
If nights awake I’d sleep all day.
I’ll have no time for friends or play.
I guess if there’s a choice to make –
I’ll sleep at night, spend day awake.
