Sunset Watcher

Mommy, can we watch the sunset?

Dinner still sitting on the table
Baths not yet taken
Toys scattered about
Fifty tasks calling me
About to say “not tonight”

Big green eyes implore
Doubt shadows her face
Sunsets don’t wait for long
Years of yesterdays gone
Already lost to the stacks of dishes

Honey, let’s go watch that sunset
