Almost Sleeper

Written for My Amazing Children

One more story,

One more book.

Come here, Mommy,

Take a look.


Let’s play a game,

And watch cartoons,

Go outside,

And chase the moon.


Close your eyes my almost sleeper,

Cuddle up real tight.

Dream sweet dreams my almost sleeper,

All through the peaceful night.


Come lay with me, Mommy,

Come snuggle up with me.

Tuck me up, Mommy,

Right her is where I want you to be.


Close your eyes my almost sleeper,

Cuddle up real tight.

Dream sweet dreams my almost sleeper,

All through the peaceful night.


Look out the window, Mommy!

Look at all the stars!

Can you hear the traind, Mommy?

The sound of all the cars?


Can I have a drink of water?

Maybe a little snack?

I have to go potty, Mommy,

I’ll be right back.


Close your eyes my almost sleeper,

Cuddle up real tight.

Dream sweet dreams my almost sleeper,

All through the peaceful night.


Give me a goodnight kiss, Mommy,

I want a hug too!

I’ll see you in the morning, Mommy,

Oh, and Mommy, I love you!!


I love you too my almost sleeper,

With all of my heart!

Together for ever my almost sleeper,

Never shall we part!
