As We Lay You Down to Dreams

Lay your head down,
child close your eyes
enter dreams
wherever they may lye;
of someplace better 
than where you lay
inside your dreams,
for you we pray.
We bow our heads
and from bleeding lips
from oft repeat
we say this:
"Lay down your head
close your eyes without fear.
Child no one can hurt you,
no not here."
So sleep child
and dream of a better day
someplace better than here,
left washed in gray.
