The Silk Lullaby

Night-dark steals into your bed
And as the darkness grows
For you, my most beloved
I’ll stay until it goes.

Let not the shadows whisper
Or haunt your lovely dreams
I’ll chase off every shiver
And hold you close to me.

Black silk may come to taunt you
And steal away your rest
But I will sing as lovers do
Of how together we are blessed.

If ever I am not with you
When the stars covet your sleep
Dear one, sing this tune
My love, just think of me.
