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

    I picture lovers, but some of the verses could also fit a parent and child.

    What a protective and caring picture of love this paints, a woman reassured and feeling safe by the heartbeat of her love. Hugs, Jonikins
