Mummay Mummay

      Mummay  Mummay

Tucked up in bed so nice and neat
A little girl so very sweet
But all is not quite what it seems
She can’t find sleep because of dreams

Her mother sitting down the stair
Enjoying rest in comfy chair
A tiny voice comes to her ear
The story of her small girls fear

“Mummay mummay”, she faintly sings
“I am afraid of these dark things
Please come quickly my mummay
And chase these frightful dreams away”

Upon the stair a foot does tread
Then she’s beside her daughters bed
Away from eyes her hair she brushes
Red lips kisses, whispers hushes

“Now worry not you are secure
All your bad dreams I’ll endure
Come to me and let us cuddle”
Between the sheets the pair a huddle

Where golden locks begin to mingle
Faces touch and soft cheeks tingle
Hands caress to sooth away
The troubles that upon her prey

Feeling warmth of mothers breast
Against her lightly beating chest
Her eyes they flicker into schemes
Pleasantness pervades her dreams

The demons of her mind withdrawn
She’s free to slumber till the dawn
Soon from the child comes no peep
At last, she finds, her perfect sleep

Mother sees her laying there
With smile beset in golden hair
And wonders in a future day
Her little one will have to say

Now worry not you are secure
All your bad dreams I’ll endure
When in a time far away
Her babe becomes, mummay mummay

    I was hesitant at reading this for so long (for whatever the reason, I believe it was the title). This is really good, though! I can see the mother and daughter so vividly, as well as the thoughts of the cycle repeating... when the daughter becomes the mother. Well done!

    Tender and sweet. Mother's comforting arms where fears are banished and hope is restored. I miss my Mummay! Lost her 13 years ago... :( Beautiful beautiful write.

    Thank you Eileen, sweet memories for me in this one. I lost my mum 12 years now, and not a day goes by I don't think of her and like you miss.

    Awe, you had me all tucked in bed with this one.. right up until the moment she could not sleep because of her dreams. You have a very nice flow Richard, and their is nothing better than mummay's warm comfort and security. You gave this poem a very tender feeling, of "here comes mummay to the rescue. A wonderful poem to embrace from mother to mother... and now my babe is a mummay... :-) always, a fan~ LINDA
