Lullaby for Alexander

Lullaby for Alexander

Close your eyes
Count back from ten
Tomorrow
We can start again

Think of stars
Up in the sky
Count them now
That sleep is nigh

Sleep my gentle child
And fill your head with dreams
Of puppy dogs and baseball games
And hundreds of ice creams
Count the shining stars
Keep counting back from ten
Tonight, just sleep and dream your dreams
And tomorrow start again

You can skateboard to the moon
On golden beams of light
The moon’s surrounded by the stars
That brighten up the night

I’ve counted down to one
And you are now asleep
God keep you safe my little one
As from your room I creep….
