a song for you
to lull you
off to sleep?
a verse for you
you can keep.
a scene for you
of grass and sheep.
your gentle heart
that’s ever deep.
That’s all for this week, Dear Ones! Enjoy the rest of your day and be sure to create amazing days ahead … after all, you are worth it!
In Light and Laughter,
