Emma’s Song Series: #1 “Go To Sleep”

Emma’s Song Series

I’ve written a few songs, both original and “to the tune of”, for my daughter in the last 3.5 years. Someday, I plan to publish them or whatever. I thought I might start by putting them here.

GO TO SLEEP (sung to the tune of Brahms’ Lullaby)

Go to sleep, Emma Grace.

Dream of all things around you.

Dream of butterflies in the sky, flying way up high.

Dream to dance, dream to sing, dream to be anything.

Go to sleep, Emma Grace.

First, I’ll kiss your face.

  1. I am grateful for my friend, Carolyn Morriss. She just better stay put!

  2. I am thankful for a good night sleep.

  3. I am appreciative of the people involved in my small successes over the past few days.image image image



imageI’m being reminded of the early days of motherhood. The zombie life. She hasn’t napped for three days. Fell asleep at 5:30pm. Awake at 10:30pm. Not back to sleep until 1:30am. Up again at 6:30am. Ugh. I just don’t know how I functioned for all those months without sleep. It’s amazing how quickly we forget.

I guess vacation’s over.
