Water's Lullaby

Evening shadows have grown long.

The darkness echoes with tranquil song.

Be not afraid of the night.

Its presence is merely the absence of light.

Now come all the stories untold.

As nightly dreams slowly unfold.

Close your eyes my daughter.

And listen to the sound of the water.

The rivers and the sea have started to sing.

Listen and you may hear the secrets they bring.

Life shows us beauty, we only need look.

More than can be found in any song or book.

The moonlight is soft and shows a quiet land.

In its silver caress, tall trees silently stand.

Birds singing 'neath starlit skies.

Will soon see the red sun rise.

Close your eyes my sweet daughter.

Just listen to the lullaby of the water.

Thoughts? Opinions?
