Understanding lullaby © (poem)

Don’t be afraid, my angel

Don’t be scared tonight

The stork doesn’t want to hurt you

He’s the bird that brought you to life

Each step you alone have taken

Sent you down a wider path

Which stretches the whole horizon

No-one knowing how long it lasts

 

Don’t be afraid, my angel

Don’t be scared tonight

Mistakes happen when we are mistaken

The trick is to put them right

Each choice can always be doubted

Each delay can make things worse

But believe in what you are doing

And don’t let greed control your thirst

 

Don’t be afraid, my angel

Don’t be scared tonight

I’ll always be with you

Even if I’m out of sight

Your decisions I may not agree with

Your judgement we may not share

But your life is yours for living

The destiny of which I care

 

So don’t be afraid, my angel

Don’t be scared tonight

Close your eyes and sleep carefree

I wish for you on the winning side.
