Aabye's Baby
LULLABIES IN THE NIGHT
I got to see you
The lips of the dreams themselves whisper
Lullabies in the night
The stars in your eyes
Murmuring endearments
Sweet promises
Shafts of light
Warmth and sunshine
Your Presence most cherished
How bliss melts into arms of rapture
And rapture bathes the soul of dewdrops in love
The eyes of dawn bright and smiling
The song-birds welcoming
The winds dancing and frolicking
Alas
But the rude gaze of Sun
Burns through the fabric of Reality
Scorched dreams crumbling
Into a heap of cinders
Blind thoughts searching for Muse
Cold, cold ashes
Soulless dreams
Drifting, fading, kindling again
With the fever of madness
