A Cradle Lullaby

A Cradle Lullaby

Hush, hush my little one

No more tears and no more fears.

These four walls and my embrace

Will dry your desperate, frantic tears.

I am here to keep you safe.

None will raise a threatening hand.

The raging storm beyond the hills

Is kept at bay, will not come nigh

For I will keep you from all ills

I am here to keep you safe.

No wind will stir your silken hair

No rain will touch your tender head.

No frown will darken brow so fair

Nor cast a shadow on your bed.

I am here to keep you safe.

You came into this world of woe

Amid much tumult, cries and pain.

Then swept up to your mother’s breast

And sung this gentle sweet refrain.

I am here to keep you safe.

Nightly terrors laid aside

Cradled in your mother’s arm.

Then passed to me I made this vow

To shelter you from every harm.

I am here to keep you safe.

I gazed in wonder on your face

And marvelled at your perfect form

I held you gently while you slept

Soothed and sheltered from the storm.

I am here to keep you safe.

Now I must make good on that vow

Put aside my wayward life

Dedicate my days to you

Shelter you from every strife.

I am here to keep you safe.
