A Lullaby For My Daughter
A LULLABY FOR MY DAUGHTER…….
The sun has retired to his far away abode
after a long day of wandering in the skies,
as night begins to knit a wooly black blanket
to snuggly wrap a worn out world,
and the arms of sleep beckon like a loving mother
to embrace all those who long for her comfort.
Yonder, the moon shines as a solitary lantern
resembling a luminous silver plate,
and stars wink like a bunch of naughty children
who are contemplating a trifling mischief,
while forlorn clouds merge forming an angel’s outline
vowing to keep us all safe under her wings.
Blissfully, you lie in the cradle of my arms
as sheltered as a pearl in its crusty shell,
while the wind joins me in singing you a lullaby
whistling softly as it rustles tree leaves,
as you shut your little eyes contentedly
holding close my love in butterfly kisses.
As the floodgates of milky dreams open
drenching you in their magical and sweet charms,
beautiful and vibrant images float all around
in lands where virtues always conquer evil’s harm,
as you trudge over a fading bridge of rainbows
to wake up in the lap of better tomorrows.
