Silent Lullaby

Silent Lullaby

A Chapter by Aianarie (INACTIVE)

A hushed piano melody attempts to lull me to sleep
The backdrop of this broken reality is a cloud-filled sky
When I emerge from the depths of thought and time
I become fully aware of the promise that I made
It's wrapped around my finger

I look up at my lonely star
That twinkling light knows just where you are
I miss you, darling

CHORUS.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Hush now, the night awaits
We'll touch fingertips in our own special place
Listen hard and you can hear my heart beat
Be not afraid, I'm closer than you think
Our someday will come before you have a chance to blink
Think of me tonight
I'll be your lullaby

We can lie to ourselves and just smile, blank as a snowy day
Or we can turn our bitter feelings into our greatest joy
Wherever you go I am always with you
Don't forget the promises we've made
Keep them locked in your heart

I hear the winds of change blowing
I hate not ever really knowing
Where you are, darling

There's something hidden deep within me
That comforts me through dreamless nights
If I shut my eyes and drown everything out
I realize that you're right there
You're right here

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
(You're right here with me, where you belong)
Hush now, the night is waiting for you
I'll embrace you now while I have you
Listen hard and you can hear me, I'm still breathing
(You're right here with me, where you belong)
Be not afraid, He's looking down on us
Our someday will come before you have a chance to blink
So be still
Don't make a sound
Think of me tonight
And I'll be your lullaby
Your lullaby

I miss you, darling

Wow. The opening stanza really sets the tone. Really brings the scene to life. There are a lot of emotions going on in this poem and I think you handled them well. Thumbs up.

A very good opening chapter. I like your description of many places. I like when poetry is added to a story. Give the story a different feel. Thank you for the excellent chapter.

This weaves such a beautiful sense of soul and divine peace. The flow is gentle and swooping, taking us on lullaby ride. As the eyes start to close, the dreams of better things, more joyous times fill the spirit.
I feel as if the is the voice of the heavens speaking unto that of mankind.
A truly wonderful experience to read. I can only imagine the soothing music that might accompany the soul filled voice.
