A Lullaby

Come...
Come home to me,
Rest your head right here and be,
Let my arms be your fortress,
And my breath the breeze to caress.
Let the crease of the forehead be smoothed by the touch,
Let the child in you know I'm here very much.

Come...
Come home to me,
The sound of the silence, the scent of night.
It's all for you my darling, take all you might.
The day has been long, and you've done all you had.
So come now, surrender to peace and be in this blanket clad.

Come...
Come home to me...
Give me the tears, the worries and the quest.
For now, all you'll do is in my arms rest.
Hush! Hear the stars speak,
They'll tell how nothing is all that bleak.

Come...
Come home to me,
Sleep, sleep well, Oh dear,
I'll guard your sleep always near
I'll be here to stroke your hair,
And your sleep now, dreams too won't share.

Sleep,
Sleep for I'll be here all night,
To scare away all that might give you a fright,
Sleep, for I'll not let even the slightest sound reach you.
Sleep, for you'll awake to a beautiful morning's dew.

Sleep well, my darling,
When you'll wake up, I'll be here to see,
That you open eyes to beauty and glee,
Sleep well, for I am here very much,
And all night you'll have a soothing touch.

Sleep well, my darling
Sleep.
