Lullabies of Hope

by Sandy M. Humphrey

Could I put to rest your anger
If I sing it sweet lullabies
Tell it sweet dreams and wishes
Will ride in on moonbeams
As you slumber through the night

If I watch you sleep and stroke
A slip of hair from your furrowed brow
Will loneliness creep on tiptoes
Into the darkness of your past

If I whisper “I love you”
Before the morning breaks
Will you awake with the hope
Of a new day and the joy that awaits

Please tell me how I can reach you
You say only I have the key
I will lie down beside you and pray
Somehow you will let me love you
As close by I stay, somehow I stay

Praying I can put to rest your anger
As I sing it sweet lullabies
Moonlight streams through the windows
Bringing sweet dreams and wishes
As you slumber through the night

Sweetly poignant and positive! An uplifting read to be sure in what seems an increasingly insane world.

Sweet, sentimental, tender, full of hope. Lovely verse for a loved one.
