Rest Now Under Stars and Moon

Lullaby: A lullaby is a soothing song, usually sung to young children before they go to sleep, with the intention of speeding that process. As a result they are often simple and repetitive. Lullabies can be found in every culture and since the ancient period.[1] (Wikipedia)

Today, it is a privilege to be able to join in with the link on @Edspire’s blog to promote the launch of the FSID changing their name to The Lullaby Trust. I know so many of us have been touched by the loss of the beautiful star Matilda Mae, and it is a true testament to her and to her amazing family that her legacy is being extended every minute of every day. I have no doubt she is smiling down on us all and loving our blog posts, written to help raise awareness of FSID’s new name. http://www.lullabytrust.org.uk/

So here is my contribution, a lullaby, sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Rest Now Under Stars and Moon

Precious baby close your eyes,
The day is done, how time flies.
Dreams will come to soothe you soon,
Rest now under stars and moon.

Rock you gently, cuddle tight,
Keep you calm till morning light.
Dream of what we did today,
Dream of all the messy play.

Dream your dreams of love and joy,
Dream of things we both enjoy.
Know I’m here all through the night,
Help to soothe, restore the light.

Sleeping baby peaceful now,
Could gaze at you for hours, wow.
Beautiful baby still and calm,
Nestling in my comfy arm.

Precious baby close your eyes,
The day is done, how time flies.
Dreams will come to soothe you soon,
Rest now under stars and moon.

Xx

    Lovely words, so pretty

    Love the words, ‘Dream of what we did today- dream of all the messy play’

    Extremely fitting and touching for you to consider and think of Matildas legacy in your writing.

    A nice read xxx
