Good day, friends….Welcome to Leisure Lane…
As you know, this blog mainly features my art and writing. One night, when I found it difficult to fall asleep, I asked for heavenly assistance. The following poem is what came out. I immediately got up to write it down. I have mated it with a sketch that I had intended to make into a painting, but alas, one of many sketches I never found the time to paint…yet.
I can imagine this sung in a middle eastern melody, but I’m not a musician…col…so it is better left to one with a flare for such things.
On many nights I still ‘sing’ this poem within myself to aid in a peaceful rest. I hope it speaks to you .
Sing Me A Lullaby
Sing me a lullaby, Yeshua.
Sing me and lull me to sleep.
Sing me a lullaby, Yeshua,
With your voice gentle and deep.
Take me on a love journey
Through heaven’s gardens delight.
Hum me a mystical melody
That I may rest all the night.
Guide me through subconscious visions
Where tempest or harmony reign.
Aid me in travels less peril,
Through one night in tranquil domain.
