the wind will still blow.
the world is still turning.
somewhere exotic the sun is still burning.
but here, the night's full
and so must be rest,
your head by my heart
gently pressed to my breast.
the whispering ocean
with tall tales to tell
is done for the day.
as he settles his swell,
the flickering starts
so impossibly high.
our yawning and waving from far in the sky
and oh mother moon, with her pale peaceful light
keeps watch from above
as she sings us goodnight.
'goodnight, goodnight.
oh, my children, goodnight.
sleep deeply, sleep safely. my children, sleep tight.'
