Ever Lasting

Softly sing the lullaby 
Stroke the face 
A last goodby
My lovely child


Gently place a rose atop
Shedding tears
That never stop
My lovely child


Little child dressed in white
Best speed now
A homeward flight
My lovely child 


I await that blessed day
When I hold 
Your hand and say

My lovely child
