Goodnight, My Little One

I watch you as you’re sleeping
So quietly you lay
And I think of how I love you
More than words can say

I gently brush the hair
From your little face
And quietly say a prayer
Thanking God for today

As I tuck you in
Sure to cover your tiny toes
I blink back a tear or two
And kiss your little nose

Quietly I whisper in your ear
“Goodnight, my little one,
you’re so precious and so dear.
I love you bigger than the sun.”
