Oh, sweet girl give up the fight…
Close those eyes, say good night.
We’ve had some fun, we’ve played today.
You’ve brushed your teeth, your lips have prayed.
It’s time to rest and settle down.
Mommy’s saying goodnight, please don’t frown.
I’ll see you when the day is new…
We’ll play again, the whole day through.
That’s it, drift off my little one.
Night has come, this day is done.
Sleep peacefully, may you dream sweet dreams.
As I watch you sleep, my heart just beams.
It is so full, here in this place…
As I kiss your sleeping, angelic face.
