Quiet Little Child

Quiet Little child, so at peace

you are as you sleep on,

such dreams you must

be having.


Watching you lying

there without a care

in the world.


Waiting until you

awake, so I can

see your beautiful smile

that you always give to me

and to tell you how much

I love you.


written 4-17-11

For my grandson Brandon

Beautiful sentiment, James, and heartfelt write! Thanks for sharing. Though my poem "Finest Wine" was not about wine itself, I would like to congratulate you on 25 years of sobriety. :) Caroline.

Yes. The image of a child asleep is priceless - the perfect picture of innocence, quiet, and God's love. Love, daver
