Mommy Kisses

Mommy Kisses


Each night I tuck you into bed

I brush my hand across your head
and in each tiny little fist
I place a magic mommy kiss.

Full of love and hope so bright
To keep you safely through the night,
Mommy kisses in your hand
To guide you off to slumberland.

If you should dream of monsters mean
Or witches with faces masked in green,
Of snakes that squeeze you oh-so-tight
Or darkness with no sign of light.

When nightmares hold you stiff with fear
A part of mommy still is near.
Just open up your hand and blow
One mommy kiss and nightmares go.

Your mother is always with you... She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.

She's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks.

She's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well.

Your mother lives inside your laughter. She's crystallized in every tear drop.

She's the place you came from, your first home...

She's the map you follow with every step that you take.

She's your first love and your first heart break...

and nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, Not space...

Not even death... will ever separate you from your mother...

You carry her inside of you...
