Goodnight Child - Poem by Kristine M.Edwards

When I lay my head to rest I whisper
goodnight my guardian angel dear,
Goodnight my child she always says,
sleep tight and have no fear.
As I get ready in the morning and walk my way to school,
She always gives me a little kiss and mouths the golden rule.
As I walk out with my friends I say I'll always love you,
I love you also sweet child, be careful in everything you do.
When I get home I relax and remember the events of the day,
Knowing she was always with me, content in lighting the way.
So, when the day has finally ended and awake is to depart,
She leans over and whispers softly......
....I'll keep you in my heart.
