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.

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

  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? ;)
