Brother Watches Over Me

My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping
He cradles me close, afraid I will wake
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping. 

I want to talk, tell him what my mind is seeping
But laggard thoughts are still opaque
My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping.

To hear his voice soothes my core from weeping
Freeing tears that could flood a lake
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping. 

He thinks I am awake when eyes are peeping
A sudden movement would be a mistake
My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping.

From dawn to darkness my mind is creeping
Along with sounds my voice does make
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping. 

As he holds me, my dark eyes are sweeping
Tightly he contains me nearer so not to break
My brother watches over me as I lie sleeping
And he assures me I am in his safe keeping.
