Lullaby

No stress, don't cry
The day will be over soon

Hush and hushaby
Close your eyes
Tonight you'll have sweet dreams

Don't think about your worries
Everything shall pass
Tomorrow will be sunny
You'll have blue skies

Your dreams will come true
You'll find true love

Dry your tears and look forward
No need to be afraid

No monsters in the closet
No skeletons either

A pretty dress, perhaps
And shiny, new shoes
Roses and lace
Cakes and pies

Don't cry, dry your tears
It's okay to smile
Today can be whatever it wants
Tomorrow is yours.
