Lover’s Lullaby



~~~

Sleep, my love, now sleep

Let twilight fall into night

And I will hold you near

Your head on my chest

My heartbeat in your ear

~~~

Shed the worries of the day

Exhale the troubles of your mind

As safe in my arms you lay

Love in my heart you find

~~~

Breathe deep the lilac in the air

And dream of all that’s right

No harm can befall you here

Kissed in beautiful starlight

~~~

And I will watch over you

My angel, as you sleep

On the ‘morrow I’ll see you through

With the promises that I keep

~~~

And when dawn greets day anew

And the stars seem to leave the sky

Remember these words of my love true

Within a lover’s lullaby

Sleep, my love, now sleep

~~~

    what a lovely and loving lullaby

  3. You words took me to a place away from the world, where there were only two people, and all was right in those moments. As a lullaby, I know someone who could put music to those words and perform it, and it would be indeed beautiful.
