The day has only begun,
You need not rise up to work,
Quiet, gentle girl, quiet,
Your smile moves to tired smirk.
Oh, lie still, dear one, lie still,
Don’t try to wake up just yet,
Peaceful rest is what you need,
Peaceful rest is what you’ll get.
Your pillow is fluffed and clean,
The duvet is tucked right up,
It is safe to sleep, to dream,
I am here, your hand to cup.
