Joyce, a chara,

I think "Ba mhaith liom mo chailín deas i mo leaba ina codladh" translates as

I would like my pretty/nice girl in my bed in her sleep /or asleep.

Oiche (cuinn ?) do you mean ciúin? That would mean silent or calm night.

"By my side" is a tough one! Miguel's suggestion looks good and may be right. Hopefully, an advanced speaker can confirm Miguel's suggestion or give additional help with that one!

ard mór!

beside me, by my side, next to me, etc.:

le mo thaobh
le m'ais
taobh liom
in aice liom

most of which can also mean "compared to me"
