(almost) a lullaby

looking-out

stay
in this place

the water rises
out there

danger
comes with
the sweeping wave

stay in this place
the light is harsh
and bright
there

stay with me
here
in the dusky warm

I would not
lose you

I would not
let you
go

stay
with me

stay below

all the wide
is ware

you must watch
where you go

lest some strange thing
would lay you
down

rest here
my dear
I will take care
of you

lay right down

rest
your bloodied
brow

stay
in this place …

stay
in this place …

stay …
