Goodnight

Please sing me one more lullaby
Before you tuck me in tonight
Tell me what to dream about
Before I close my eyes
My thoughts are still too loud
And your words sound so wise

Please give bear one more kiss
so he doesn’t feel left out
I know it always comes to this
But it scares me when the lights go out

Please scare off the monsters
That lie under my bed
And put away the book
of the story we’ve just read

Please hold my hand a little
Until I feel okay
You come sit next to me
After a while you turn away

A little beam of light
comes through the crack of the door
With your face in the middle
Saying “Goodnight” once more
