Be Still My Love

Rating: 4.8

I saw your tears in dawn’s soft light
As close beside you then I lay
Within my arms I held you tight
To ease you through another day

The smile that once lit up your face
Became a distant memory -
Oh you I never could replace
You’ll always be the world to me

Another day, another time
The sun will shine forever long
Across celestial realms sublime
When we will sing a sweeter song

Be still, my love, don’t weep, don’t weep
It’s time, my love, to sleep, to sleep
