Let me envelope you in a warm smile my heart will never again know, For you are innocent and your years are few,

Dreaming child

Let me envelope you in a warm smile my heart will never again know,

For you are innocent and your years are few,

Oh to be in the years that prelude to the changing and mutating this world brings upon you,

I've been through the baleful transmogrification and my tears remind me of my withering humanity,

But that isn't the story I want to tell you,

Let me fill your heart with reassurance and your mind with pleasant images,

For there will be so much time for suffering in life,

So sleep and dream pleasant dreams and let me bless you with a world within a bubble,

It will wear away but will he the thickest of armor in the darker years,

Smile gently and glow in sweet bliss,

I will go and cry as no one hears,

Look upon a person I no longer know,

A reflection that is too truthful and harsh so I sometimes avoid to look it in the eyes,

Your sweet slumber upon a subconscious imagery of a field of blooming clovers and dandelions,

This is what will give my heart the will to live another day,

And maintain the image of composure,

You will be the future sapling upon me, the soil that will nourish you with what remains of me,

So sleep and never know the truth..for now
