Sing the Lullaby

I know you’re tired momma and ready to go to bed. But then, that little voice says, aren’t you going to sing my lullaby? Yes, he’s older now, and should have outgrown this. He is no longer a small child who can’t close their little eyes without the sound of their momma’s voice singing their favorite tune. Yes, he is a big boy who can read his own stories now and doesn’t even want a kiss goodnight. But, when that baby asks, yes baby because he will always be your baby, momma you sing the lullaby.One day, he will be all grown up, and he won’t need you to sing that lullaby anymore. But right now, he just wants to hear his momma’s voice, he wants to hear the comforting melody, he wants to be soothed by you. Don’t let those moments slip away. Don’t let his memories be of you being too tired.So, when you’re tired momma and ready to rest your headYou tuck your little ones in and get them ready for bedWhen you feel you’ve done all that can be doneBut a song is asked to be sungYou smile and give a kiss on the cheeklet the lyric come out so soft and meekTheir favorite lullaby you will singA lifetime of joyfulness it will bring.
