NANNY DEAR

I WISHED LAST NIGHT TO SEE MY NANNY DEAR

AND IN MY DREAM SHE DID APPEAR

HER SMILEY FACE AGLOW AND SHINING

ASKED ME HOW SHE LOOKED AS OUR HANDS WERE TWINNING

YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL NANNY DEAR I SAID

AND WE LAUGHED IN LOVE TOGETHER AT THIS REUNION IN MY HEAD

TO SUSTAIN MY JOURNEY ONWARD TO OUR HEAVENLY MEET

I LEFT WITH SOME OF NANNY’S BARLEY SUGAR TREATS

MY KIND NANNY’S BIRTHDAY IS NEARLY HERE

AND NOW I CAN FACE IT WITHOUT TEARS

MY NANNY
