Written for my little grandson. When playing it for the first time to his mother, she burst into tears. I said, "Is it so bad" !


Oh little tired child, where has your mama gone?
I can see it in your eyes you need to sleep
For the light is getting dim
And there is no one else around
And there are only silences to keep
Ah but just a little while you rest your weary eyes
And we'll take each morning as it comes
And if you fall asleep then we can wait for morning time
We can wait together for the sun

He is just a sleepy boy who's waiting for a brighter day
All his wishes waiting while he lies
And when his dreams come true
Then you will see him smiling through
But Leon needs to close his weary eyes

The light is fading fast and there is no one else around
There ain't no point in fighting it at all
For little guys they have to close their peeps as well you know
For little guys are one day walking tall

I'll wait a little longer til you close your weary eyes
We'll wait together til your papa comes
And you and grandpa Scotland
We can wait here in the warmth
You can close your eyes when the day is done
