Night, Night

Now I lay me down to sleep
This days promises to keep
A hug, a snuggle, a moment of peace
Given to those I love.

Now I lay you down for bed
Kiss your cheek and stroke your head
All the days troubles are gone and fled
So that you can dream.

Now I read a page or two
Finding strength to make it through
From the scriptures for me and you
God's gift to all of us.

I know, it is kind of hokey, but I was singing to Maddy and the poem kind of came to me. Not my finest work, but the sentiment rings true.

It is a lovely, lovely lullaby. I wonder what the tune will be?

All of my kids love this book. We use it for nap time with Maddy. We recently lost Maddy's copy, and I need to get to Powell's to get another one.
