Go to sleep my sweet
Your candle continues to burn
Won’t you go to sleep and find me in your dreams?
Where for once, everything is exactly the way it seems
Close your eyes and meet me in the middle
Before long your head will be next to mine on the pillow
Your hair will braze my shoulders like a weeping willow
My arms were meant for many things – but so long as they’re wrapped around you – happiness will ensue.
You are so magnificent and driven
Beautiful in your persistence to utilize what the good lord has given
Books will be written in your name – that is how this distance will be tamed
Your smile is perhaps a tangible cure for the insane
Go to sleep my love
Be at peace like a fluttering white dove
Calm and serene – your visage can be likened to a mid-summer-night’s-dream
Go to sleep – and I’ll never wake
With every stroke of the brush I imagine the life we will make
A day at a time – until I make you mine
But only if it is what you desire
You have instilled in me an everlasting fire
Go to sleep and join me in this dance
I offer you my heart and hand – for the most spectacular of things we must take a chance.
