A Mother's Lullaby


Oh, my child, fret no more
Close your eyes and go to sleep.
Here I am by your side
Singing lullabies, sweet and cherished.

All sounds are stilled for you to sleep in quiet
All lights out that no beam hurt your eyes
All storms calmed that to a blissful rest you glide
No horrifying dreams to rob you of your snooze.

Sleep, sleep rocking in the sea of joy
Sleep, sleep close to your mother's throbbing heart
Sleep, sleep listening to this gentle lay I tune
Sleep, sleep to wake, to the miracle of life.

Fear not, around you much love abounds
And legions of angels, to guard your sleep.
Thy eyes shall hither new beauties behold
And many a marvel, for you to rejoice.

It's for you the stars twinkle and gleam
It's for you the breeze hums sweet and blest
It's for you the buds open at the fall of gloom
It's for you the glow worms scatter rays of gold.

It's for you, the seasons come and go
It's for you, the fruits ripen and fall
It's for you, the raindrops plop n' break
It's for you, God paints the sky in myriad hues.

Now hush my baby, sleep my child
Lying below this smiling silver moon
Good night darling, drift away
To the land of dreams, where fairies live.

Conceived within before you were born
Called you names and caressed you soft
Cuddled you tight and kept you safe
In the secret chamber of my maiden heart.

I pledge your soul to God our Lord
May He watch you through the gloom!
I consign my babe to His sacred trust
And bid you away to dream's Never never land

Sleep, sleep rocking in the sea of joy
Sleep, sleep close to your mother's throbbing heart
Sleep, sleep listening to this gentle lay I tune
Sleep, sleep to wake, to the miracle of life.

    What a most beautifully lullaby, Valsa. I would love to hear it set to music, it is truly awesome! The Mother's love flows as freely as her milk to nourish her child. A very warm, inspiring write which touched this reader's heart as she read. Made me wish I was a child again and my beloved Mother could sing this exquisite lullaby to me, as she rocked me to sleep. Thank you for sharing, Valsa. Blessings always... (Report) Reply

    Valsa you really touched my heart with this lovely poem. I almost fell
    asleep at the keyboards on this one. The beating heart that the child
    feels and hears as she lies on her mothers chest is soothing and
    relaxing. A flowing of love from the mother a feeling of closeness for
    the child. Very poignantly written. (Report) Reply

    A Mother 's Lullaby

    GERMAN TRANSLATION

    Oh, mein Kind, Bund nicht mehr
    Schließen Sie die Augen und schlafen gehen.
    Hier bin ich an Ihrer Seite
    Singing Wiegenlieder, süß und gehegten.

    Alle Sounds sind verstummt für Sie in ruhiger schlafen
    Alle Lichter aus, dass kein Lichtstrahl die Augen weh
    Alle Stürme beruhigt, dass zu einem glückseligen Ruhe gleiten Sie
    Keine erschreckenden Träumen Sie von Ihrem snooze rauben.

    Schlafen, schlafen rocking im Meer der Freude
    Schlafen, schlafen in der Nähe Ihrer Mutter pochende Herz
    Schlafen, schlafen Hören dieser sanften lag ich stimmen
    Schlafen, schlafen, aufwachen, um das Wunder des Lebens.

    Fürchte dich nicht, um euch viel Liebe reich
    Und Legionen von Engeln, um Ihren Schlaf zu bewachen.
    Deine Augen sind hierher neue Schönheiten erblicken
    Und viele ein Wunder, für Sie zu freuen.

    Es ist für Sie die Sterne funkeln und glänzen
    Es ist für Sie die Brise summt süß und selig
    Es ist für Sie die Knospen öffnen beim Fall der Finsternis
    Es ist für Sie die Glühwürmchen Streuung Strahlen aus Gold.

    Es ist für Sie, kommen die Jahreszeiten und gehen
    Es ist für Sie, reifen die Früchte und fallen
    Es ist für Sie, der Regentropfen plop n 'break
    Es ist für Sie, malt Gott den Himmel in unzähligen Farbtönen.

    Jetzt hush mein Baby, schlafen mein Kind
    Liegen unterhalb dieser lächelnde silberne Mond
    Gute Nacht Schatz, driften
    Um das Land der Träume, wo Feen leben.

    Konzipiert innerhalb bevor du geboren wurdest
    Genannt werden Namen und streichelte Sie weiche
    Kuschelte dich fest und hielt Sie sicher
    In der geheimen Kammer meines Mädchens Herz.

    Ich verspreche deine Seele Gott unserem Herrn
    Möge er beobachten Sie durch die Dunkelheit!
    Ich Sendungen my babe Seine heilige Vertrauen
    Und bieten Sie weg zu träumen ist Never Never Land

    Schlafen, schlafen rocking im Meer der Freude
    Schlafen, schlafen in der Nähe Ihrer Mutter pochende Herz
    Schlafen, schlafen Hören dieser sanften lag ich stimmen
    Schlafen, schlafen, aufwachen, um das Wunder des Lebens.
