Precious, Tiny, Little One

Precious tiny little one
When it’s raining, you’re my sun
Your laugh the tinkle of a bell
Bringing heaven, dousing hell

Precious, tiny, little thing
Let me hold you while I sing
Your lashes droop and brush your cheek
I’ll rock you till you fall asleep

Precious tiny little flower
I’ll shield you from the darkest powers
Until you’re old enough to stand
And only need to hold my hand

Precious tiny little dove
Mommy’s heart is full of love
With every kiss and every song
That leaves my lips my whole life long
