Death is but a slumber
Of sweet and sugar dreams
Of drifting into feather clouds
Ablaze with phoenix wings

Of beads of glowing star dew
Dripping from the Heavens
In the cerise blush of evensong
To paint the black eclipse

Hues of ardent drizzle
Seeping through the emerald sky
On luminescence's deep sea petals
Curled in azure waves of tinsel
For all eternity...

Of stormy, whispered secrets
The astir will never hear
Of forever lustrous twilight
Dissolving into nothing.

So sleep, my pretty darling
Rest your weary moonbeam eyes
And sail into that forever apparition
Soothed by my gloomy lullaby
So sleep, my lovely child
You don't ever need awaken.
