~o~

Do not wake, my sleeping child

The dawn is very young

Trees are swaying, quick and wild

Like sad songs I have sung

~o~

Do not stir, my sleeping child

Your mind need not be moved

Rain is falling, hard and wild

Like sorrows I have proved

~o~

Do not move, my sleeping child

The stars are flung apart

Behind the clouds, bright and wild

Like echoes of my heart

~o~

Do not wake, my sleeping child

The night has not yet passed

Trees are breaking, quick and wild

Like bonds that cannot last
