Closed Eyes

Sleep, my child,

for you will know,

what is tomorrow,

but I shall not,

it is true, I used to hold you,

used to love you,

so deeply,

but that is all gone,

my life is gone,

but you strive,

you will live,

behind my closed eyes,

they will watch you,

from my shallow grave,

death shall not wait,

because it feeds,

it feeds on the weak,

but do not fear,

your mother will protect you,

because I once held you,

I love you, behind closed eyes.
