Goodnight Jillybug

Goodnight, Jillybug
Now it's time for bed
Fluff the pillow to soften the dreams
That dance in your precious head

Playtime is over now
And I know it came too soon
Oh, so sad, but don't you cry
Cause daddy will sing you a tune

I hope you had fun today
Without a worry, not a thing
It hurts me if you're sad, my dear
So join me as I sing...

Make your bed and brush your teeth
Its okay to look underneath
But don't you fret
Don't you cry
Cause daddy is watching
Somewhere nearby

A glass of milk and a snack is fine
If you share yours
Then I'll share mine
Now crawl in the covers and kiss me goodnight
I'll tuck you in
And tuck you in tight
And if you wake up
In a night that you fear
Just call my name
Daddy's right here

Goodnight, Jillybug

    You actually doing something to help those people reflects your big heart, and I applaud you for that-- not everybody does that. You're so right about the poverty that you can see... I admit I am guilty because I don't act more in helping with it...

    cont'd I mean I felt compelled to write something when I got home, Thanks again for your thoughts, they mean a lot :). Btw, I am an islander in the sense that I live in a group of islands but not a Pacific Islander. Mabuhay! I am from the Philippines ;) And ok, I will concede, something about more than my name that's intriguing (I honestly thought it was, because who in their right mind calls themselves pee??, frankly I am stumped...)

    You got me smiling here, Caleb-- this is just the sweetest poem for your daughter-- ok I am imagining the avatar of hers that you put up though-- I bet she loves her daddy to pieces! And thank you for the story that you shared- that's amazing that you did volunteer work in China with your brother-- you might be right about them not having seen blonde hair before! I'll look forward to your poems about your travels. I'm happy you liked that poem, thanks for the fave-- that was one of those times that I Had to write
