Your eyes see the world and gift it with a smile.
But if you should ever see it with eyes that mimic mine, that smile would be no more.
So look the other way, for now. I will face the world for you.
There is but stardust that blind your infant eyes.
I remain silent, but only if you knew of the battlecry inside me.
Will you join me in my uproar, or would you create your own?
For now, I will lull you still.
Tonight is for your dreams.
Tomorrow's battles will wait
as I keep watch in the dark night.
And when the day comes that you will be too old to remain asleep,
And I, too old to carry you...
May I find a way to make you smile once more.
