Close your eyes my darling dear
in my arms I’ll rock you to sleep.
A kiss to your cheek I’ll give
to protect you from monsters in your dream.
Don’t be afraid when darkness comes
no one can harm you while I’m around.
Rest your weary head in my embrace
leave your childish worries for another day.
I’ll watch over you as the moon slips in,
even hold your tiny hand, never wanting to let go.
Close your eyes my darling dear,
your mommy is holding you tight
a kiss to your cheek I’ll give
and a promise I’ll whisper to your ear.
