The Newborn Angel's Lullaby

Angel-born smile slipped away
To forever-sleep in grace,
Left behind a name to love
But what's in a name?

Please sleep in peace
As your dream-bound voice still sings its melody
Unfit for tears, not for love, not for me...
Sweeter the dreams, bitter the sorrows,
At the dawn, awaken forlorn…

All the tears shed at the breaking of the dawn
Each for the memory of the loved ones now gone
They come to comfort me through the lonesome of the night
Until the day I join them beyond the light…

Lovers rolling in the fields of snow
In this sacred meadow of life
The heart has no fear nor shame to hide

This is my dream, my fantasy
To see the world as it should be
In the safety of my memory

The smiling clown dances for their delight
Yet it is nothing but a dream
