My Baby – What Are You Dreaming About?

                                        My Baby

What are you dreaming about?

 

What are you dreaming about?

My baby, as you sleep,

Can you share your dreams with me?

Are you dreaming about,

Trees whispering to each other,

Flowers nodding their heads,

Butterflies showing off their wings,

Or is it about the birds that fly ahead?

 

My baby,

What are you dreaming about?

I can see a smile on your lovely  face,

I wonder what is making you smile,

Do you see my smiling face?

 

What is that you see in your dreams,

My baby, what is happening?

Are the fairies dancing around you?

The Pixies calling  you out  to play,

Did the moon smile and wave to you,

Asking you to stay?

 

I always wonder what is that you see,

In your dreams that make you smile,

I wonder if you could see me in your dreams,

Can you tell me was I there all the while?

Can you tell me if I was the one,

The one that made you smile,

If only you could talk to me right now,

You would fill my heart with joy!

 

What did we do, my baby

Did we play with the moon beams,

Did we zip past all the stars,

Did we float above the milky way,

Flying from Uranus to Mars,

If only you could talk to me,

What a miracle it would be,

My baby are you dreaming right now,

Smiling as you drift back to sleep.

      Paul Neglia, thank you. It is magical when babies smile in their sleep. I wonder what they dream about when they smile.
