Little One – Another Lullaby




Little One


A lullaby for my granddaughter Kaytlyn

The world is turning, Little One,


The sun’s gone out of sight.


It’s time to close your eyelids now


As day turns into night.




The woolly lambs are in their fold,


The bunnies are in bed.


Even squirrels up in the trees


Are gathering dreams instead.




As all the stars climb in the sky


And half the world’s asleep,


God’s angels guard us, Little One,


And in his love we’ll keep.




Oh Kaytlyn, you’re my Little One,


I treasure every part.


Your tears, your signs, your smiles, your cries


Are nestled in my heart.
