Child, Close Thine Eyes


Child, I know the world's only as warm as ice
and the monsters in your mind wont let you close your eyes
and at night when you should be asleep
you lie in bed and silently weep.
I know you're not afraid of the monsters under the bed
you are only scared of the demons inside your head.
It's not easy watching dad fighting with your mother
it's even worse that she takes it out on you and your brother.
I can only imagine the heartache
you feel when they call you a mistake
I know that it feels like your world is coming to an end
and all you ever need is a friend.
sleep child, dont fear the dark
I will be here to kill the evils that lurk.
no matter how dark the night
tomorrow the sun will bring us light
so sleep,child, close thine eyes,
I will watch over you till when you rise.
Sleep,child, close thine eyes,
I will watch over you till when you rise
