Watch over me as I sleep, as I watch over you
Should you stir in your slumber I will guide you back to your dreams
I know it is nice there, your safe and protected
I wish I could go there with you, to know how you truly feel
To see your true smile and to hear your true laughter
Once your eyes close, you are so still and so peaceful
As gentle as a single willow branch I gently rock you back and forth
Deeper and deeper you drift further away from me
Go to your place and wait for me as my eyes close I will look for you,
Should I not find you, know that I am still here
When you wake you will see I was holding you close keeping you safe
Should I not wake
Know that I have gone to my place and I am waiting for you.
A goodbye in body can allow us to reunite in spirit a passion never experienced
Sleep well, now let us drift away as one.
