Goodnight Emmy Sue

From Grandpa Perkins
In Loving Memory of our Beloved Granddaughter "Emily Susan Hawley" 1/6/96-3/27/96

reprinted with permission

You went to sleep last night
You cried,
I held you, I said
³I love you²
You went back to sleep.

You went to sleep last night
You cried.
I changed you, I said
³I love you²
You went back to sleep.

You went to sleep last night
You cried
I fed you, I said
³I love you²
You went back to sleep.

I went to sleep last night
I cried
You went to heaven,
My heart died.

I went to sleep last night
I cried
I dreamed you came to me, you said
³I love you²
I went back to sleep.

I went to sleep last night
I cried
You came to me,
You held me,
You said,
³I love you²
I felt your peace
I felt your soul
I went back to sleep

I went to sleep last night
I slept.
I know I have a lot to learn
a lot to teach.

I know your heart, your soul, your spirit
will help me through my hard times.

I went to sleep last night
I slept.
I love you, Emmy Sue!
