Lullaby

Lullaby

A Poem by Erudite Boredom

Hush little baby, don't say a word

 

Hush my child, the time is come
Close your eyes, the day is done
The moment has passed
to laugh and play
You may breathe your last
In the fading light of day

 

Momma's gonna buy you a Mockingbird

 

Hush my child, the time is near
May Angels ever whisper in your ear
These broken dreams
are not meant for you
All is not as it seems
In this world of black and blue

 

And if that Mockingbird don't sing

 

Lie back and rest, you've earned your sleep
You have not any promises that you must keep
I tried to give you the world
but this world is full of sin
Before your wings could unfurl
The Beast was loosed again

 

Momma's gonna buy you a diamond ring

 

Lie your head next to mine, as you dream and drift
All this time is but sand, and it stirs and shifts
I'll sing no more
this darkening day
All will be as it was before
And for your soul I shall pray

Wow that is a beautiful poem dear and I can't wait to read more of your work. It's so full of emotion that I wanted to cry.
