My Lullaby - Poem by Lora Colon

The sun's work is over, the moon's shift begins,
The sweet smell of jasmine floats on the wind;
Though your heart is breaking, try not to cry,
I'll sing the words softly..... hear my lullaby

Night is upon us, the day's on the run,
The birds sing their hymn to the setting sun;
You say you can't sleep, they say you must try,
Close your eyes and be still..... hear my lullaby

Every heart searches for this blessed relief,
Your fears won't take hold, they're in retreat;
It's time to sleep, the darkness is nigh,
I'm close by, my darling..... hear my lullaby

Sleep well, my beloved, you're safe and sound,
The light of the moon is caressing the ground;
I'll stay here with you 'til the sun is high,
Close beside you I'll be..... hear my lullaby

And when the dawn breaks into a promising morn,
I'll be right here with you as the new day is born;
And soon, the sun through your window will fly,
I pray you felt peace hearing my lullaby

    whether it be sun or moon
    I adore you
    both clasp my heart
    taking turns to light your face
    a muse has come to my bed
    dreams of Lorraine in my head
    visit my quill with wet words
    I await your glow (Report) Reply
