Just like the old days

Today A. tried so hard not to fall asleep.

His eyes closed and he still fought to stay awake.

I held him up.

He barely opened his eyes and said:

“I don’t want to go sleep, mom”,

and his eyes closed.

 

I put him in his bed

and he woke up crying,

fighting so hard not to fall asleep.

 

We came downstairs and I held him once more.

He passed out.

This time, for real.

 

I took him back to his bed,

tucked him in

and closed the door behind me.

 

A bit later he wakes up.

Crying.

And I hold him again.

 

He fell asleep again,

this time in my arms.

Just like the old days.
