I Bid You Goodnight (C.O.T.)


Sweet lullaby, head nods;
Sleep is on the way.

A mother's touch, in bed your tucked.
Sandman comes to play.
One soft kiss, from small wee lips.
The time for sleep is nigh.

"Dream on, for dreams are sweet:"
when moonbeams through windows shine.

Gautami - When my son was young I'd write for him such things. Now he'd be embarrassed. Couldn't pass the opportunity up to write another with this prompt.

Old Grizz - Thank you so much. I enjoyed your C.O.T as well

Anthony - Thank you so much

Marja - Thanks sweetie, sometimes the softer side of me comes out.

Shadow - I miss childhood sometimes, the innocences, and the laughter of youth.
