Here you are so small & new.I will help you learn the things to do.
Through my voice, my gaze, my touchyou will know that you’re loved very much.

Smile, my little one.Daddy’s/Mummy’s here.We’re warm beneath the Sun& at night when
the stars come into vieweach one of them will wink and smile for you.
Step by step, venture outside.Stretch forth your arms & marvel, eager-eyed.This wild
world’s wonder-filled beautyflows, rotates, awaits you patiently.
This song is written in a style with which I’m not usually strongly associated.I
like to think that it’s less of a lullaby & more of a wake-up-aby.It was inspired
by the singing of Rohima, a teacher, to a group of her nursery-class children.
The gap between writing & recording was partly because the arrangements for this
song needed to be relatively simple, something which doesn’t come easily to me.
Let joy & laughter calm your cries.We’ll share the sparkling between our eyes.If
I’m away, I won’t be long.Soon you’ll hear me singing you this song.
