Lulaby for Jonah.

Sweet little baby sleep
Curled up in your mum's loving arms
The midnight star will shine over you
Though i be so far away
The African breeze so cool and fresh
Will blow over you and bring me near
To tell your mom what's happening here.
Sweet little baby sleep.

Sweet little baby sleep
When you wake up in the morning
The morning sun will shine over you
Give my love to Auntie Robyn
Tell granny Debbie so dear
To tell you that sweet fairy tale
Thank your mummy for thinking of other babies
Sweet little baby slee...

Brought a smile to my face

Sometimes I believe that all we need are lullabies and sweet sweet words to spread peace throughout our communities. Thank you!

What a Beautiful Gift

Hi Leah!

Thank you so much for your gifts of love and creative energy. We'll cherish this lullaby just like we do the beautiful crafts you've sent our way. So lovely!!

And I'm curious about the origins... did you write this one, or is it a traditional lullaby?

See you on Skype,

Maria Jett, Online Community Director

Oh!i did write it for sweet Jonah.

Hello Maria,

I specifically crafted it for Jonah.Trying to babysit him from this end.The distance is far,but my heart close...

Let's meet on skype,

Leah.

Leah,

Jonah loves his lullaby and feels so extra special that you wrote it for him! Your warmth and generosity have left us filled with hope for Kenya in particular and this crazy world in general.

Jonah is growing and changing everyday. It's hard to believe that he has not always been part of my life.

We hope to meet you in person soon.

Much love from us to you,

Jennifer
