Sleep now my little angel, go to sleep
Daddy’s here I will never make you weep.
I’ll be with you until you are awake,
Watching every move, every breath you take.
Face so pure, innocent, seems surreal,
It takes away the sorrow I conceal.
Tiny fingers so delicate to hold,
I will protect you until you grow old.
You are my pride, my blessing and my joy,
I breathe because of you my little boy.
You’re the greatest treasure my everything,
To keep you safe I would do anything.
So close your eyes my Angel, go to sleep,
Trust that all these promises I will keep.
Right by your side is where I'll always be
The last and the first thing you'll ever see.
