Sweet dreams.
Lovable toy to sleep with.
Your parents and God and sisters
love you.
You feel safe
because you are.

written by Victoria, my 7 year old daughter, who says she wants to be a poet when she grows up...from the mouths of babes.

She certainly has a gift. It's simple but beautiful through and through. She's blessed to have poetry in her genes.

Such reassuring words. The ending tugs at the heart. ^_^

(to sweet Victoria: have fun with words, darling.)

Wow, that's good. She has got it from you, no doubt! :-)

How absolutely delightful. Simple, sweet and to the point. May all her best dreams come true.

The beauty of innocent child's words. She has a great role model.
