I smile when I see you asleep in your crib
Cheek down and yet poised as in flight.
I wonder then why must you hurry so fast
On your journey thru dreamland tonight.
No, linger my child
and pause while you can
Too soon life will rush you
when you are a man.
For now only stroll - or better yet drift
Drift with your dreams hand in hand.
Savor your secret and unspoiled hours
In your night's magic wonderland.
