Bedtime Banter.

‘Good-night Sweet One’                                        

‘Fanciful Dreams,’

‘And sleep well.’

“Good-night Mom”

Loving smile,

Take a step toward the door. 156 more words

Emma's Eyes.

Emma’s Eyes…..  are diamonds of flickering light.

Like snowflakes and sapphires colliding; and bright.

Emma’s Eyes…..  twinkle and dance whenever she smiles.

If you look long enough, you could disappear for miles. 132 more words
