Baby mine, don’t you cry
Baby mine, dry your eye
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine.
Little one when you play
Don’t you mind what you say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine.
If they knew sweet little you
They’d end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they’d give just for the right to hold you.
From your head to your toes
You’re not much, goodness knows
But you’re so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine.
(I sing this to Sam in the middle of the night, while we rock to sleep. I rarely get through it without a few tears. I am often overwhelmed by the depth of love I feel for this little baby, my Sam.)
