Lullaby to an Angel
I peek through the door set ajar in his room.
His head rests against the pillow, with his eyes shut
his rosy almost smiling face glow
with the dimmed light of a lamp
the night is quiet and warm, it is Summer.
His day was busy and filled of joyful moments,
he swam in the pool, run around the playground,
played games with his friends. His laughter is heard
all the time while playing.
Sleep little angel, sleep your dream where you can
fly around beautiful gardens teeming with
colorful flowers, humming bees and singing birds.
Sleep well, because you have to give us your
love tomorrow and a little of your breath so we
can live too, next to you.
Sleep in peace that we are here to
protect you and love you with all our heart.
Sleep my little angel…
Sleep my son.
