I'll See You in the Morning

This book was given to me at Rosabella's baby shower.  I had never heard of it before.  I read it to her for the first time last week and I just started crying.  It was what I wanted to say to Grace, what I want to say to her now.  That I was right nearby and I would be with her again.  Here are the words I want to say

I'll see you in the morning.  For now it's time to sleep.
I will stay and watch a while till you are counting sheep.

Don't be afraid of darkness, don't be afraid my sweet.
The night is just a blanket that helps the Earth to sleep.

Creatures great and creatures small will all be sleeping soon.
Under the same blanket, under the same moon.

So close your eyes and go to sleep, by the light of the moon above.
I'll see you in the morning in the light of the sun my love.

Dream your dreams of moonbeams.  Let the night become your friend.
The twinkling stars will keep you safe till morning comes again.

I'll be here if you need me.  I'm only steps away.
So close your eyes and go to sleep and dream of a brand new day.

Good night.
Sleep tight.
I'll see you in the morning.

I'll see you again someday baby, I'm only steps away.
