My little one


Rest next to me, my little one.
There will be time to get up and go on;
But for now, just sleep next to me,
My little one. 

Play with me, my little one.
There will be time for serious things,
But for now, let's play together,
My little one.

Walk with me, my little one.
A time will come and you will run far,
But for now, just walk with me,
My little one.

Let's tell a story, my little one.
There will be time to face the world.
But for now, let it all be magic,
My little one. 

Give me your hand, my little one.
A time will come when you'll have to let go,
But for now, let's hold hands,
My little one.
