Mommy and Daddy Are Always in Your Dreams - Mommy Version

by Kayte Deioma AKA Auntie Kayte

Mommy is with you in your dreams.
My arms are open wide.
I will catch you if you fall.
I'm always by your side.

Daddy is with you in your dreams
Everything's alright.
He'll keep you safe from all your fears,
So you can rest through the night.

Mommy is with you in your dreams
I'll always understand.
When you're sad or frightened,
Just reach for Mommy's hand.

Daddy is with you in your dreams
Watching you through the night.
Just crawl into your daddy's arms.
He'll be there to hold you tight.

We're here to watch you run and play
Just as real as it seems.
Whether we're near or far away
Mommy and daddy are always in your dreams

Tips for singing Mommy and Daddy Are Always in Your Dreams.

Mommy and Daddy Are Always in Your Dreams was inspired by children who have night terrors, to empower even the youngest kids to bring the comfort of their parents right into their dreams to help ward off whatever fears are present. Although this was the inspiration, it is written with the wellbeing of all children in mind.

It is designed to be sung in the first person by a parent who is with the child, or in the 3rd person about a parent who is away from the child, whether it's for one night or forever. It can also be sung by or about grandparents instead of parents, or by or about any other caregiver or loved one in a child's life.  I've written it to include both Mommy and Daddy, but if it's more appropriate to the situation, it can also be all the same person, whether it is the person who is singing in first person (I) or the person who is absent (he/she).

The version above is the Mommy version. Below is the 3rd person version. For the Daddy version, you can either change the existing Daddy verses to first person (I) and sing the Mommy verses in 3rd person, switch around the word Daddy and Mommy to opposite verses, or make them all Daddy and first person.
