sleep in my arms

sleep in my arms

silken threads of hair
laying smooth above your eyes
closing in the half light and lullabies
whispering the names of stars

creaking steps across the bridge
of life and death
wondering at the songs
I sing,

fall asleep small one,
with these whispers
of everything
