My Grey Haired Love...La La Lullaby , La La Lullaby My Love




did you hear the words in my head
ebbing, reaching then receding...
did you ever not know where this was leading
my heart beating at night
at times
with yours

my heart wishing
to spend more time with you
and to make your time into our time
into a lullaby lullaby
not bye bye my love
not bye

I send you thoughts that are my arms
I send you thoughts like a blanket-blue
in the night they hold you close
my thoughts are a comforting covering
a sheltering cloud
like a lullaby lullaby
not bye bye my love
not bye

sometimes thoughts can travel the distances
sometimes thoughts have strong wings of their own
sometimes thoughts get caught in the wind
and fall and falter get beaten down

yet I'll continue to send
my thoughts, my dreams to you
even if you think they are lies...

let my thoughts be winged angels
healing rain down on you from the skies
let the words be a lullaby lullaby
not bye bye my love
not bye

let the words in my head connect you
to my heart strung with a string of beaded memories
these are my gift of lullaby lullabies
not bye bye my love
not bye

oh, you are my song
the melody which could carry us both
across the mountains and across through rougher seas
and then cross over into the world
of your restless dreams
that lead to morning
not to mourning eyes
erase the doubt and erase your sad sighs
your loneliness
will become a lie
lullaby love
not bye bye my love
not ever bye

I wish you grey-haired love
that will last and outlast
all your  days and all your miles
and many-many
lullaby's lullaby's
not bye bye my love
not bye

holding you close in the lap of my heart,
and in the steady rock of your feasting eyes
only lullaby's lullaby's
to smooth your cares
and soothe your tears
my love my love
a gentle gentle lullaby lullaby
not bye bye my love
not ever bye

angel wings to lead the music of the spheres
to fill your opened listening ears
lullaby lullaby
fall to sleep
be mine and yours and ours to keep
my love my love
my grey-haired love
la-la lullaby lullaby
not bye bye my love
not ever-ever-bye.
