A Mother’s Keeping
Hush! Hush! My daughter, and fear no more tonight;
Or surely you’ll grow weary:
Hush! Hush! My daughter, and look unto the skies of light,
As they shine so clearly
Hush! Hush! The fear you carry found in lies
Shall prey upon your peace of mind;
So look into my rich brown eyes,
And let my gaze help ease your bind.
Hush! Hush! My daughter, and with my touch no longer cry
Hush! My daughter, let me hold you tight
Still my heartbeat: your lullaby
Know my love, I’ll be your forever knight.
Hush! Hush! How soft your mother speaks
Peaceful in song along with her whisper
Melodious rhythm she always seeks
The calm sound of her voice shall never wither.
Alas! My daughter, you lay now sleeping
I, Your mother, and you my keeping
