The Valley Song

(To the melody of "The Violet Hour" by The Civil Wars)

Twirl and flow, softly blow

So is the breeze in the night

Rustling leaves and no worries, no fears, in sight

.

Little girl, don't you fret

No bad dreams will near your bed

Close your eyes – there is peace in this valley tonight

.

Hold me, protect me from outside

Let me hide my eyes, let me forget the strife

Kiss me, I'm so tired I can't cry

For now I've fear of the darkness and

The monsters that roam the night

.

Little girl, don't you fret

No bad dreams will near your bed

Close your eyes – there is peace in this valley tonight

.

See the moon shining bright

Banishing nightmares and cries

Lay down now, I will hold your hand in mine tight

.

Hide me, help me get through this night

I am shivering cold, the candle's now blown out

Guide me into my slumber, light

With fingers running through my hair, you whisper now, "it's dead"

.

Just sleep tight

Forget all that's outside

Hold my hand

I will not leave you yet

.

Little girl, don't you fret

No bad dreams will near your bed

Close your eyes – there is peace in this valley tonight...

KayJuli: This is a little something I thought of while imagining what sort of song Katniss Everdeen would have sung to make the birds stop and listen and have Peeta Mellark fall in love with her so completely. I hope you liked it, as I enjoyed writing it. :)
