Hush Sweet Angel ...

Image
Oh hush sweet angel, dream of starry skies,
Your Teddy Bear will keep you safe tonight.
Don't let the darkness cause your heart a fright,
Let joyful sounds replace your teary cries.

Don't listen to the monsters telling lies,
Those silly monsters always lose the fight,
Oh hush sweet angel, dream of starry skies,
Your Teddy Bear will keep you safe tonight.

As mum and dad sing softly, lullabies
Will sprinkle stardust gently in the night
And cause your world to once again spin right,
So sleep now darling, fill our hearts with sighs:
Oh hush sweet angel, dream of starry skies,
Your Teddy Bear will keep you safe tonight.

If I had Just One Wish

If I had just one wish that could come true,
     I'd wish upon the morning's brightest star.
That God would hear the words I pray for you,
     And smile on you to bless you where you are.

I'd wish upon the morning's brightest star,
     For peace within your softly heaving breast.
And smile on you to bless you where you are,
     It's in your heart my spirit finds its rest.

For peace within your softly heaving breast,
     Where beats the heart of one who's dear to me.
It's in your heart my spirit finds its rest,
     There we abide in synchronicity.

Where beats the heart of one who's dear to me,
     Resplendent with the sunsets gilded sighs.
There we abide in synchronicity,
     Delighting in the world between our eyes.

Resplendent with the sunset gilded sighs,
     That God would hear the words I pray for you.
Delighting in the world between our eyes,
     If I had just one wish that could come true.

Poseidon's Gift

In depths of sea, enamoured by his form
She lingered long, her tail anchored fast,
With golden sleeves the sunlight glimmered warm
On scales of blue, her beauty unsurpassed.
   She caught his eye, upon the ship’s tall mast,
A twinkle cast across a waveless sea
   Unlocked a heart, for she possessed the key.

This key she held was more than just a charm
Unlocking treasures long since buried deep,
As all young men, he feared not any harm,
One sight of her, his heart was hers to keep.
   So stealthily, at night with all asleep
He swam into Poseidon’s waiting arms
   And gave his life to her seductive charms.

She watched the life slip slowly from his eyes
And felt her own heart tear itself in two,
For naught she lured love from ‘neath the skies    
And lost her chance to love in deepest blue.
   Now left to mourn, darkness would ensue,
She cried in vain, for listless in her arms
   The man she loved; succumbed to all her charms.

She called upon Poseidon to restore
This man who loved her…
