Border Lullaby

rocking, rocking, rocking

longing to touch your face

I can only send you 

this border

lullaby

 

my dear child hear this my lullaby 

whether long miles or steel bars between us lie 

remember my child I love you 

my song is not a goodby 

 

my arms warm ever about you wrap 

even when on cold floors you try so to nap 

remember my breast feeding you 

you so trusting in my lap 

your dad too giving laughter so bright 

putting your fears to rest when storms shatter night 

remember strong hands helping you 

his love bringing warm sweet light 

 

I longed for freedom’s celebration 

not journey ending in long separation 

remember my desire for you 

childhood full of elation 

 

hold close my last seen smiles not my tears 

my whispers of I love you easing your fears 

remember my hopes for your life 

become whole as dark storm clears 

rocking, rocking, rocking

longing to touch your face

I can only send you 

this border

lullaby
