Just tonight my Monkey

Your smile lifted off the clouds
As we approached our home
You run and skip with such delight
Around all you've ever known

Can I stay up late please Daddy
You ask with hope and grace
Just tonight my monkey
A huge grin across my face

So we watch your favourite movie
Your toys across the floor
But the day quickly takes it's toll
And you begin to snore

I see that you are dreaming
Restless kicking at your feet
A troubled dream in strange lands
With the monsters that you meet

So I rest my hand upon you
And whisper in your ear
It's all right my sweet monkey
Don't you worry Daddy's here

Your restless feet stop kicking
And a tear falls from my eye
As you stretch out whilst still sleeping
And you breath a peaceful sigh

Shall I stay up all night long now
Just to make this moment last
For time stops when you're not here
When you are it's gone so fast

But I know you'll wake me early
Daddy please get out of bed
And my heart will feel the sunshine
As your voice spins round my head
