Mother Dearest One Last Lullaby

Mother dearest sing me to sleep...
Just one last lullaby
The monsters you tried to fight are restless in my head
Instead of underneath my bed

Mother dearest just one last kiss...
Please do not cry
I've wished on the stars with all might
I just want to sleep every day and night

Mother dearest just one last tale...
Read with your usual hope
Tell me about the fairytales
The ones that once seemed so real

Mother dearest please tuck me in...
Make sure the blankets tight
Even if my flesh is cold
Even if I'm young or old

Mother dearest sing me to sleep..
Just one last lullaby
The monsters have won..
I'm finally done.

Mother dearest even if I'm gone
Sing me one last song
Wrap me in my coffin tight
Sing to me with all your might
Send me off with a gentle kiss
Mother dearest I got my wish..

Sing to me underneath my willow tree
Let your voice run through the breeze
Mother dearest I had and have no choice
I can only rest when I hear your voice...

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
