LULLABY


I love you - sleep.
I love you to the core of your being, sleep.
Little one, sleep.

Listen to the wind.
The wind in the leaves, sleep.
Let the wind breathe, sleep.

Let these arms hold you.
The everlasting arms. Beneath.

And all that the air is, loves you
and all that the wind breathes
whispers to you...

Beloved, child of the spirit, sleep.
Beloved, queen of your heartbeat, sleep.
Beloved, from your head to feet -

Let your mind be sleep.
