Time For Me


I want to paint, I want to craft,
I have so many blog posts in draft.
I want to go for yoga, I want to cook something fun,
I want to drink wine while reading a book under the sun.
I want to sit quiet and sip on my tea,
But I'm a mom of twins; where's the time for me?

I want to get a massage, I want to go for spa,
I want to go shopping, I want to buy a new bra.
I want to swim, I want to ski, I want to raft and canoe,
There's suddenly so much in life that I want to do.
I want to climb mountains, I want to go dive in the sea.
But I'm a mom of twins; where's the time for me?

I want to go out, I want to learn something new, 
I want to have more adults to speak to.
I want to take rest, I want to sleep,
I don't want to just wash, clean, mop, and sweep.
I used to be so calm, chilled out and carefree,
But now I'm a mom of twins; where's the time for me?

I want to eat my food in peace, I want to watch movies,
I want to take a small break from all of my duties.
I want to have breakfast lunch and dinner in bed,
I've fed them enough, now I want to be fed.
For one day I want them to just let me be,
But as a mom of twins; where's the time for me?

I want to write, I want to bake,
I want to dance and shimmy and shake.
I want to make videos, I want to travel,
I want to deck up, dress up, and dazzle.
But I'm a mom of twins, and there's so little leisure time,
Yet, I will make space for these little dreams of mine.

  1. Awesome :)..

    Learnt something today :) Just wanted to tell you my little story
    I want to get pregnant... last year we had a miscarriage and after that I suddenly stoped doing all such things that you mentioned in your poem. After reading you lines.. I think if these things are going to be missed after having babies then I should start doing all the activities as soon as possible so that I do not regret for not doing them...
    Thanks for these beautiful lines :) I have learnt something.
