"Just a Baby's Prayer at Twilight"

Just A Baby's Prayer At Twilight (for Her Daddy Over There)

I've heard the prayers of mothers, some of them old and gray

I've heard the prayers of others for those who went away

Oft times a prayer will teach one the meaning of good bye. I felt the pain of each one, but this one made me cry

Just a baby's prayer at twilight when lights are low. Poor baby's years are filled with tears

There's a mother there at twilight who's proud to know her precious little tot is Dad's forget-me-not

After saying "Goodnight, Mama", she climbs up stairs quite unawares and says her prayers

"Oh! kindly tell my daddy that he must take care". That's a baby's prayer at twilight for her daddy, "over there"

The gold that some folks pray for, brings nothing but regrets. Some day this gold won't pay for their many lifelong debts.

Some prayers may be neglected beyond the Gold Gates. But when they're all collected here's one that never waits;

Just a baby's prayer at twilight when lights are low. Poor baby's years are filled with tears. There's a mother there at twilight who's proud to know her precious little tot is Dad's forget-me-not.

After saying, "Goodnight, Mama", she climbs up stairs quite unawares and says her prayers

"Oh! kindly tell my daddy that he must take care." That's a baby's prayer at twilight for her daddy, "over there"
