Keep Calm and Carry On

It’s hard to keep calm when you two little boys,
Are Tasmanian whirlings of mischief and noise,
So loud and so clumsy and surprisingly strong,
It’s hard to keep calm and just carry on.

It’s hard to keep calm when I’m trying to work,
While you’re attacking my laptop and tugging my shirt,
When you’ve filled in my diary with bright blue crayon,
It’s hard to keep calm and just carry on.

It’s hard to keep calm when I’ve not slept in so long,
When you’re wailing and crying and I don’t know what’s wrong,
When all I need is patience just when I have none,
It’s hard to keep calm and just carry on.

It’s hard to keep calm but it’s easy to love,
When you’re all that I need when the push comes to shove,
You’re the shifting sands that I’m now built upon,
So I’ll learn to keep calm and we’ll all carry on.

In the quiet hush of morning, through the bedroom wall,
I hear your two talking, like a soft waking bell,
And I feel a content stillness at the breaking day’s start,
You two put the calm in my once anxious heart.
