A lullaby.


Underneath all the blankets,
Children hiding from life's ailments.
Covering bruises, cuts, hits.
Lets just try to sleep it all away.

Grandmothers, the empty house.
Children grown, long without a spouse.
They are still alive, without,
Please, just try to sleep it all away.

Can you please just say goodbye?
I will forget about everything inside.
Close up everything to hide,
And just sleep it all away.

Good night child,
Go to sleep for a while,
Good night my dear,
Farewell to all your fears,
Good night young one,
We all love you so much.
We all love you so much.
