Sweet dream kisses

dream lighthouse

Drift away on a sailboat of wishes,
O’er a stardust sea.
Silver moon lights the way
To a land of sweet dream kisses.
Close your eyes, count to three.
Tomorrow we shall play.

  1. Ohhh, I love a kiss before bedtime. This one was as sweet as the ones I place on tiny temples before the zzzz’s.

    On the eve of kindergarten, I loved this one best. :-)

  2. This is totally fairy tale-esque! It was peaceful and hopeful and lulling. And the end’s promise is perfect for anyone but especially for a sweet child. Miss this tucking in business!!!

  3. These words make it impossible not to see a little chubby cheeked kid being tucked in by a loving parent, it’s just beautiful with just a little magic thrown in ;)

    • When our kids were young, and we had special plans, we’d tell them ‘two more sleeps’ or ‘one more sleep’ and getting them to bed in anticipation of a day of fun, was much easier.

  4. I really want to start playing today… This poem is like my life! Really, it is! And tomorrow I return to it, so I guess it’s true that I will only start to play tomorrow. How did you know? ;)
