Sweet Lullaby

Sweet Lullaby

A Poem by Elizabeth Shaji

Waiting for a better world

So close your eyes and sleep my child
Far from the world's tempting ways
And I will sing a lullaby
Till we see the sun's rays
I'll comfort you as much as I
Can, So come in my embrace
I'll stroke your hair and hold you tight
We'll see no more bad days
The night has come so sleep my child
Together we will both escape
Reborn in a world with light
Sleep my child, we'll never be awake

I started out reading the first 3 lines or so, thinking this sounds a little predictable, nothing making this opening stand out as memorable. But as your poem goes on, it seems to veer off into a less predictable realm, as I wondered if this message is addressed to an actual "child" or if this narrator is using "child" as a term of affection for a romantic interest. As I pondered this, reading on, I started to think there was something twisted about the way this narrator is insinuating him/herself into the future of this "child" . . . almost as if subtly suggesting a dual suicide pact . . . or it could also be an invitation to escape until the crazy world calms down (which never happens) so in effect, this feels like a luring plead into some dark nebulous place (could be what love would be like in this narrator's controlling grasp). You give us a ton to think about & ponder . . . I like when poetry does that (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
