Goodnight My Friend

Goodnight my friend goodnight
May the Angels hold you tight

As you sleep may you dream
Toss-and-turn but don't you scream

Once you wake to a day so new
Turn on the coffee and let it brew

In that morning when sun comes up
Think of me while you sip your cup

Don't think of yesterday for it is gone
Just focus on today for it won't last long

Spend as much time with those that you love
For you never know who will be called from Above

Don't worry about tomorrow for it's not here
Just live for the now that brings you cheer

Goodnight my friend goodnight,I say
Whatever you do, don't forget to pray

So lay down your head and go to sleep
Count your Angels if you can't find sheep
