Why'd You Bring That?

Chapter Text

Lullaby and good night
As I hold your likeness tight.
With willows bedecked,
What else could you expect?

With lilies o'erspread
As my shoulder feels your head,
Lay us down now and rest.
May our slumber be blessed.

Lullaby and good night,
My gondolier staves my fright.
Shining angels beside,
All your travels abide.

Soft and warm is your bed
After travel's wine and bread.
Clear your mind and rest your head.
Forget your traveler's dread.

Sleepyhead, close your eyes.
Now you've agreeabilized.
You'll protect me from harm
And I'll wake in your arms.

We'll sleep on with no fear.
Our guardians are near.
Let our minds make no fuss.
They watch close over us.

On our sheets, white as cream,
With our head full of dreams
As I hold your likeness tight,
Lullaby and good night.
