Sleeping soundly, little snores,
Dim the lights and close the doors,
Eight hours sleep (or maybe three)
You'll wake up hungry, needing Me.
I've made you warm, I've filled your tum,
You've had a bath, I've changed your bum
Snug and cosy, in your cot,
You're the most precious thing I've got.
You cry, so tired, I wish you'd sleep,
When you crash out upstairs I'll creep
Around the door I'll poke my head
I'll watch you sleep, small, in your bed
I'll fight the urge to disturb you,
Comfort, cradle, cuddle too
You're softly sleeping I miss you already
You're beautiful, tiny, and cuddling your teddy
One day I'll wake, and you will fly free
All grown up – but will you need Me?
For now I'll savour every day,
Each memory I'll store away
To bring out when I'm grey and old
or when I'm feeling lost and cold
These memories I'll look back on
With smiles and fondness, lovely, warm.
Sleeping soundly, Little snores
Dim the lights and close the doors
Tomorrow is another day
To learn and love, and laugh, and play.
