                hand side border


Lay your head down, my love
Upon my breast may you find rest
Within the circle of my arms
You are protected and loved

Lay your head down, my love
And let us speak soft words of love
Within the expanse of my heart
May you find your home

Lay your head down, my love
Look deep in my eyes and know
Within the depths of my soul
There is no other but you

Lay your head down, my love
And release your fear and pain
I am here to hold your demons at bay
Sleep, my love, for finally you are safe.
