The Rag Quilt

Rag quilt 1    Rag Quilt 2

Just a little rag quilt made with love for you,
Just a little rag quilt that marks the years you grew.
Each stitch was sewn with lots of love,
Each patch was gently placed,
Just a little rag quilt made with love for you.

It’s time for you to leave the nest,
To let your wings unfurl,
To leave the home where love abounds,
and give life a whirl.

Just a little rag quilt to take on your way,
Just a little rag quilt to comfort you each day,
Each time you feel lonely and need a little love,
Feel comfort from the rag quilt which was made for you with love.

It’s time for you to leave the nest,
To let your wings unfurl,
To leave the home where love abounds,
And give life a whirl…

Love always…Mom

This poem was written for my children Tanner and Samantha after I finished the first T-shirt quilt of my life. Samantha’s quilt is not complete as of this writing…she still has to hand over some t-shirts!

Close your eyes my little one,

dream of castles in the sun,

dancing horses here and there,

happy faces everywhere.

Be my baby sleeping fast

while the world goes spinning past

be my baby sweet and kind

love you till the end of time.

Be my baby sweet and kind,

love you till the end…

of time.
Written in 1993 for my daughter Samantha and a sweet baby M. Traverse

(If I knew how to record the music I would attach it.)

Dream Baby

 

Little baby tiny and sweet

Cradled in a dream of sleep

Eyes a fluttering, lips in a pout

You are my darling, there is no doubt.

Watching you as you grow,

Will be the greatest gift I’ll know.

Dream my baby tiny and sweet,

Rock in your cradle of love so deep,

Dream of mommy and daddy too,

Dream and know that we love you.
