Don’t Go To Sleep

After our bath,
Disguised in white clothes,
We lie in the dark
Of wild shadows.

The room smells of soap,
Our toes are warm through,
Awake in the hope
Of a goodnight from you.

We saved you some soup,
You’ll be returning,
It’s bound to be soon,
We’ll hear the key turning.

Don’t go to sleep,
Waiting for Daddy,
Don’t fall asleep,
Oh Daddy, we’re ready.

Daddy works hard
While we spend time waiting,
That’s his reward
He’ll find us waiting.


from You Can Cry (And Other Lullabies), released March 1, 2010
