Baby, listen to what Mommy says:

Cowboys and horses go to bed.

They close their eyes, lay down their heads

And soon they are asleep.

*********

Baby, listen to what Daddy says:

Trucks and tractors go to bed.

They turn their motors off in a shed

And soon they are asleep.

**********

Baby, listen to what Grandma says:

Dogs and kittens go to bed.

They close their eyes, lay down their heads

And soon they are asleep.

**********

Baby, listen to what Grandpa says:

The big old sun has gone to bed.

The moon is shining down instead.

It’s time to go to sleep.

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.

 

A Lullaby for My Grandson

I have written a lullaby for each of my three grandchildren.  Here is the lullaby I wrote for my very first grandchild, our grandson, Owen.

Little Baby Wonderful

Little baby Wonderful,

Little baby mine;

The sky is full of stars tonight,

The breeze is apple wine.

Shall I rock you on the sea

Where fishes swim and leap?

The waves will sing you lullabies

Until you fall asleep.

 

 

Little baby Wonderful,

Little baby mine;

The sky is full of stars tonight,

The breeze is apple wine.

Shall I rock you in the woods,

Where forest creatures creep?

The owls will whisper fairy tales

Until you fall asleep.

 

 

 

Little baby Wonderful,

Little baby mine;

Your eyes are full of stars tonight,

Your breath is apple wine.

I will rock you in my arms

Where you are safe and warm,

And I will sing you lullabies

Until the day is born.mother-baby-graphicsfairy007b
