In sleep we are most vunerable, and yet we all have to do it.

While you slept
I watched you one night, while you slept,
In peace through dreams, you gently crept.
Covered completely from nightly chills,
Breath so heavy the night air fills.
?
I stroked your brow, and held you tight.
I'll protect you from the nightly fright.
Sleep my darling, I'll be there soon,
Beneath the stars and shinning moon.
?
Together forever, I'll hold you dear,
Till the world behind us, we can not hear.
Eternity together within my arms,
Your safe, away from a world that harms.
?
Never again will your eyes cry,
Sleep my darling, tonight we die.
