tell me a story daddy – September 7

9.7

the childhood books speak to my

inner heart and the child inside

saying tell-me-a story-daddy

still

 

a wonder at voices that can

turn the night moment into

something warm and precious

and caring

 

to surround me with comfort

and courage and trust that it

will be alright and I can

sleep tight.

 

tell me a story daddy, and

let me know again that it

will be alright when I

awake

 

in the morning.
