Lay Still

Lay still, My darling, My angel, Stay still And be at peace. Stay calm, My beauty, My love, And for once, Let us lay in peace. All is quiet And all is calm Under the stars tonight. I’ll hold you close again one day, so keep still. Wake me up tomorrow, When your loving brace remains for only a short while. Keep me here, with you, forever, I wish, Hold me close, And lay still, We’ll be together, again But for now, Be still, my- angel, Be still A sweet, simple silence Welcomes us.
