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.
