Sleep little angel, in your cotton bed,
the one we wrought for you today,
to rest beneath your head.
The stars bequeath you doze this day
to slumber forsaking dreams,
and take beyond what things you may.
Twice the heavens opened their faultless seams
to bring upon your tired remains,
a hallucination that God deemed.
When the sun shines, darkness will drain;
the earth bathed in sunlight,
upon which you shall refrain.
The darkness is your delight,
a home to which you were born;
dreams are your victuals, which you fight
once more. For my little angel, I mourn.

hand on heart, to never let go. That night,
your eyes read I'm not scared because you knew.
And when I hold you now,
You smile and don't know why.
And when I kiss you, I swear I feel my heart,
I feel it beating.
Some nights you talk to me,
and I kneel beside you, hand on your side.
You tell me of the past, and
you tell me I love you and I almost feel alive again.
you tell me I know you're there and I just wanna
kiss the life out of you. God, I miss you.
There's times I know you see me, reflection, there's times
You know you do. I know that's what keeps you going and
It's fine. You're safe.
