Sing Me Sweet


Photo taken @ The San Francisco Botanical Gardens

Sing Me Sweet
dedicated in memory of my Mom

Sing me sweet
to sleep

Sing me hope
to fly

Sing me dreams
to keep

your sweetest lullaby.

I would love if someone tells me a bedtime story, something enchanting. This poem could be a replacement of my yearn for the sweet tender dreams.

This is such a sweet poem. I want to make a song out of it so I can sing to my pretty nieces.
