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
hello
hello
hello

my heart's wishing
to be more held and true
and to make the 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 conjuring charm
and a comforting covering
a sheltering cloud
like a lullaby lullaby (for you)
not bye bye my love
not bye

sometimes thoughts can travel great distances
sometimes thoughts grow strong wings on their own
sometimes thoughts get caught high up in the wind
yet
fall and falter
flutter to the ground

yet I'll continue to send
my thoughts, my dreams to you
even if you think they are faltering
and lies
my heart is winged
and it does fly

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

let the words in my head connect us
let our hearts be strung as pearls of beaded memory
they my gift of lullaby lullabies to you
not bye bye my love
not bye

oh, you are my song
a melody which carries me
across the mountains and over rougher seas
to travel over all the walls of the world called time
the melody that rocks your restless sleep
that lead to morning sunlight
not to mourning eyes
erase the doubt and erase your sad sighs
your loneliness
will become a distant 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

stroking your weary head within my lap
in my full and tearing feasting eyes
only lullaby's lullaby's
to smooth the lines your forehead
and settle your fears
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.
