I hope you let me calm your soul at night
I like to read, to bring the warmth of sleep
I’ll let your beauty infiltrate my sight
Your dreams will be the images I keep
I want to be the keeper of your dreams
To earn your trust, more valuable than gold
To me your heart is love; to me it seems
Your dreams are all the stories ever told
to calm the children lying in their beds
and bring the warmth of sleep in gentle peace
as all their busy daytimes leave their heads
and rest becomes their happiest release.
It’s this, the calm of night, I want to bring
I’ll read; I’ll kiss your head, I’ll even sing!
