sleep training 

Oh crikey
That smile
by moonlight.
The most wondrous
sight ever seen
I know I’m not meant
to notice
to acknowledge
to respond.
As it should be
back to bed
instantly. 

But it’s irresistible
In the moonlight.
As my face
spontaneously replies
and I whisper
not now my darling
hoping no one has seen.


Inspired by : another long night

what do you dream 

What do you dream of little one?

A smile, enlightens your face
for the most beautiful of sunsets.
A scowl, flickers across
for a hurt received.
A quickened heart beat
for the thrill of the chase.
A frown, questions
the flight of a bee.
An upturned lip,
for the joy of fragrant flowers.
A serene stillness
from the peace that love brings.

A thousand years of memories
that have yet to be seen.

a wish

If I could grant a wish
It would be for you to know
the enormity of who you are.

You are everything.
The sun, the moon, the stars
everything that has been
and everything yet to come.

The love that lasts a life time
that no words can destroy
that the years cannot weaken
that miles shall not diminish.

go away morning

Go away morning.
Let me lay here a
Moment longer
Surrounded by the warmth
that loves brings.

Go away morning.
I’m happy
In the relative stillness
of our family bed.

Those gentle, and not so gentle
Snores filling the air.
Four hearts beating their tunes
so close together.

Go away morning.
Let me hold on to this
just a moment longer.
