Lullaby


Your heart is shattered across the evening sky

Pain refracted through a wraith-like eye

Silver bells chiming in your long black hair

Untold horrors locked behind your vacant stare

 

But when the rain comes I will keep you dry

In your darkness, you don’t have to cry

I will keep you warm on the coldest nights

Lift your face up to the morning light

 

And when you are startled and you are afraid

Together we will walk across our palisades

I will stay by your side down the long, dirt road

Hold your hand until we are spent and old

 

Hear my lullaby and sleep tonight

Rest your head here with me, my love

 

So you can sleep tonight.
