A Haunting Lullaby
Close your eyes, oh my sweet little child.
and let the winds lull you into a deep sleep,
Let the soft moonlight caress your delicate skin.
Let the coldness around you wrap you in its feel,
And let the ground beneath you pat you when you stir,
Let the morning dew cleanse your innocent drool.
Let the distant howlings make you feel not alone
Let the birds’ chirping make your dreams come true.
So what if I’m not with you,
so what if I am not alive…
I will always make sure that the you’re put to sleep-
gently and lovingly…
and that none will ever disturb your sweet slumber.
