Good Night Sweet Dreams

in memory of Ellie M. Jenkins We said good night for a spell, As you start your journey onward, And the darkness soon fell, Then the moon soon rises Rising upward high. Suddenly you slipped away in sweet rest, Into another slumber and sleep As the Good Master takes your hand For He knows what's best As the rising moon is up high. What words can I truly express From my heart and through soaked filled tears Not words to kill the pain Or ease my fears But words to quietly say to you. Don't let these tears fool you Don't let these tears quietly kill you softly Don't let these skies so blue As you look up and see Angels all around to welcomes you home. Family be strong Family continues to love Like never before and remember as long As you keep that love once shared Place it in your heart forever. And now dear It's time to depart. Time is so near Yet not to far in our hearts As we say goodnight not goodbye, But sweet dreams my dear and good night. Goodnight to you and we'll see you soon..... 15 Sept. 2019
