For my grandson, who’s big Down Under (in Canberra).
Long day behind you - Long hours of playing in the sun
Night comes to hide you - Your head now rests on Mother's arm.
Little green willow - You've much to learn and much to do.
I'll be your pillow - And blanket is my love for you.
Wherever you may go, my heart - will follow you.
Prince of my castle - Already now you wear the crown
For you no hassle - your brow may never cross a frown.
Blue sky your mantle - The sun your shield, the cloud your horse
In every battle - The honour and the glory yours.
And may you always wisely choose - the proper course.
Wise be and gentle - Yet not afraid to fight for truth
Roses' sweet petal - Your innocence a force for good.
I'll always be there - The family tree's I'll be the root
You are the future - You are the branch that bears the fruit.
And in old age may you be always full of youth.
Sleep now come easy - Your path let happy be and long
Sleep now come easy - Your dreams I'll cover with my song.
