Child will you not sleep for time is dark
The evening draws near to tuck you in
For you must rest and dream.
Child will you not sleep for tomorrow
Draws close and sun will come again
To shine down and welcome the new day.
Child will you not sleep for when you don’t
Your pouts and fits carry with out rest
You need so much now.
Child will you not sleep for I grow weary
And wish to lay my head down to rest
For sleep comes to me also.
Come join me too in sleep my child
We will both lay down together
Sleep peacefully till sun wakes us again.
