Text from Where Do My Thoughts Go – A bedtime story
Where do my thoughts go?
Do they plip-plop or
do they thump-thump when they walk?
Do they spin and spin and spin with the fan and get di-diz-dizzy?
Do they ride on a paper plane to go play with the clouds?
Do they sleep like Raasu all day long when they eat too much?
Do they hide inside Mumma’s bag and secretly go to work with her?
Do they tiptoe around the house looking for a treat?
Do they grow up to be tomatoes if Papa plants them in the soil?
Do they glow when the stars come out?
But wait, I can’t find my thoughts!
Did they hide under my bed because they are scared of the dark?
“Be brave!” I think. “It’s okay. It’s just a little dark.” I go to bed. They come out and curl up in my head.
My thoughts go zzzzzzzzz with me.
