Sunday Morning Poetry


Godspeed
Dragon tales and the "water is wide" 
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly 
Fish bite moonbeams every night 
And I love you 

Godspeed, little man 
Sweet dreams, little man 
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings 
Godspeed 
Sweet dreams 

The rocket racer's all tuckered out 
Superman's in pajamas on the couch 
Goodnight moon, we'll find the mouse 
And I love you 

Godspeed, little man 
Sweet dreams, little man 
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels' wings 
Godspeed 
Sweet dreams 

God bless mommy and match box cars 
God bless dad and thanks for the stars 
God hears "amen" wherever we are 
And I love you 

Godspeed, little man 
Sweet dreams, little man 
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings 
Godspeed 
Godspeed 
Godspeed 
Sweet dreams
~ lyrics by Radney M. Foster, listen

That's our little man up there; our nephew.  He's 21 now, but our love still flies to him each night on angels' wings.

Though my "little man" is a grown up lady, I could still picture her as I read this poem. Thank you!

wow, what a simple poem so full of emotion that it brings tears to my eyes for my little men now grown up.....I can already imagine the scrapbook page I will use it for, thanks for sharing (and the little man is adorable)

All those special little guys in our lives and for that matter too, the girls, we send on angel wings our love and dreams for each of them. We embrace them in our hearts. Lovely!

That is fantastic, thank you Relyn. Here in Scotland, boys are often affectionately called "wee man".

Oh, what a beautiful poem this is, Relyn. My little man is all grown up now, but he will always be my "little man."

What a precious photograph this is.
