A Mother Sings To Her Son At Dusk.

Lie down right here, my little one,
and fill your head with dreams.
Don't worry what went wrong today,
Life's never what it seems.

There's world enough and time enough
to trim the edges that are tough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Make room inside your little head
for all the angels up above.
I'll stroke your cheek and whisper so
You'll know your mothers' love.

There's world enough and time enough
to smooth the edges that are rough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

The day will come when you go off
to seek your fortune far and wide.
Remember this when off you go:
I am always at your side.

There's world enough and time enough
to trim the edges that are tough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Someday you'll know the softest joy
when I won't be here to see.
You'll hold the sweetest fruit on earth,
then both say a prayer for me.

There's world enough and time enough
to smooth the edges that are rough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

    How very nice, Gerard, absolutely beautiful lyrics. Wish I could hear the tune too. Your remarks on my poem, "My Candle Light" goes for you too. Hope you copyrighted it. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes, Caroline.

    In your last verse I clearly see the son/daughter, in the future, singing the mothers song to their own new baby. It will become a family tradition. good luck with this gentle work...thank you for your kind remarks on my "man and dog'...cheers Margaret

    Nice lullaby with a good message. I can just picture a parent singing this. Good luck in the contest. Thank you for your kind comment. I hope you are having a wonderful Easter. Karen

    this one is very lyrical and repetitive (besides being sweet and gentle), which is how a lullaby should be. GOod one!! andrea

    Nice uplifting lullaby- I might try one- Now a boy name Sue is funny enough, but if you could do a parody on that it would be a kick

    So sweet!
