Sleep now dear child

Sleep now dear child
And rest your weary head,
Let your smile
Fall gently on your face.
Hear not the words
That life has left unsaid,
But slumber in your dreams
And in your grace.

You were mine,
For just a little while.
Till the tide of life
Swept us apart.
Sleep now my child
Whom life cannot defile
I hold thee forever in my heart.
