Mercy - Poem by Death's Shadow

Lay still and close your eyes,
I know it hurts,
I know you're scared.

Sleep tonight
and I'll end your pain.
I promise
I'll take you away.

    Nicely done, except that the first word should be LIE instead of LAY. Sorry, I can't help it. I used to be an English teacher! (Report)Reply
