I watch as you sleep
And wonder as you lie:

Do you dance in your dreams, my child,
Do you race across the rocks,
Do you climb the bare-back hills
As you chase the fire-fly?
Do you paddle in the shallows,
Do you climb the highest tree,
Do you jump for joy,
When you find a flutter-by?

Your purity is touching,
Your trust in me immense,
You drive me to distraction –
Teething and tantrums
Devoid of any sense.

I wish you peace, my child,
I wish you joy,
I wish you dreams of innocence
To run and jump and fly,
To swing on moonbeam shadows
And to swim among the stars.

Sweet dreams Ella; love you forever.
