A Pale Lullaby

Hush little ones...

fitfully you toss, turn...

the time for sleep is coming...

Though the difference be obscure.


Why fear you rude awakenings?

you won't awake alone...

I grasp you with bone cold hands...

coddling every one.


A bad thought, I seem...

Your wrong and thats my pain...

sleeping within my grasp...

snore if you will - I'll whisper.


I'm not cruel but gentle...

having naught against a soul...

won't harm the ones that open their eyes...

claiming the eternal goal.


Though dreams are nightmares come true...

do not fret or morn...

"God is a God of love alone." says you

too bad those words do burn.


For my fathers sake I wonder

If calamity will roust you still...

not wanting to feed you to the dark...

for my sake kneel.
