Where Do Babies Go to Dream

Where do babies go to dream?

Lashes dewy on their cheeks.
Sweet surrender slumber deep.
Where do babies go to dream?

Far away and past our shores spirits soar.
Beyond this world loves shared kiss
mingles there.
Where do babies go to dream?

Briefly hugged by those above.
Tender whispers go back, go back
wrapped in love.
Where do babies go to dream?

Breath's soft breeze
fingers furled, mouth and cheek
nursing seek.
Where do babies go to dream?

Sweet caress loves tenderness.
You're here with us and stay you must.
Where do babies go to dream?

Amidst our loved ones now unseen.
The kiss of God upon your face.
Where do babies go to dream?

Awake, awake from deep embrace.
Mother's breast upon your cheek.
Where do babies go to Dream?
