Lyrics: 

Midnight Lullaby
© 2020 Cindy Prince

Your eyes are bright
At this late hour
I am so tired
I've had no shower

I waited so long
For you to arrive
You don't want to sleep
It's 11:55

Chorus
So I will sing you a midnight lullaby
So you can float away
Across all of the heavens
And back to the Milky Way
I will sing you a midnight lullaby...lullaby

I rub your soft head
You sweetly smile
You finally sleep
But I hold you awhile

This time will pass
So quickly you'll grow
My sweet baby girl
I love you so

Chorus
I keep singing the lullaby
As you float away
Across all of the heavens
And back to the Milky Way
I will sing you a midnight lullaby...lullaby

I like it! Especially like the heaven & milky way lines.

Lovely. The line between frustration and adoration is so thin when they're at that age

This is a beautiful lullaby!
That is a really great chorus!
definitely a lot sweeter lullaby than some 70s rock I got Biggrin
but I wouldn't trade it

Very sweet lullaby that rings honestly and that conveys caring and love.

THIS IS WONDERFUL!!! Cindy, this is so touching and tender and sweet! It makes me tear up as I read through it and remember my babies too! This section,

I rub your soft head
You sweetly smile
You finally sleep
But I hold you awhile

captures it all for me! Baby is finally asleep yet you still hold it for awhile. That is so beautiful and such wise advice for every parent ever! They grow up so fast and this time is fleeting and you need to be there for them. Truly be there!

Cindy, you are an amazing writer and this is magnificent!!! Thank you for writing this one!

Ahh, i can so relate to this. Such lovely words. That feeling of overwhelming tiredness pushed aside to ensure your little one gets off to sleeu. So sweet.

This is so sweet! Really captures it all - the loveliness and the hard work and the exhaustion.

I enjoyed every bit of this! So real about the whole package of feelings, but the “rub your soft head” verse is so vividly drawn and very touching. Lovely!

Midnight Lullaby is a wonderful title. Made me nostalgic for those days when my kids were babies. I like the humor in the first verse, and it's a beautiful moment when the baby has finally fallen asleep and the parent says "but I hold you awhile." Very nice!

This is really good. It rings true and it really feels as if every line comes from your heart. 'Milky Way' is a good choice.
