Travel light, my dear; softly go beyond the night’s each black shadow to another plane. Out of sight exists a realm of such delight you may find relief from sorrow! Lay your head on your pillow. Sink into the Now. Tomorrow comes soon enough, but for tonight travel light! Let the sweet magic start to flow - angel wings sweeping over snow it may seem, or a rainbow bright! Close your eyes, Darling, and take flight! In Dreamland you soon will be, so travel light! Written Jan. 15, 2017 for the Travel LIght Contest of Kai Michael Neumann

Hi Andrea, what a rhymically lyrical and beautiful lullaby. The imagery is fabulous :)

I love this lullaby. It would fit perfectly in my novel. Would you consider giving (or selling) permission to use it in a published book? Are you negotiable?

If I could sing, I would sing this lullaby to my family even though every member is grown. It is beautiful and I can easily imagine a Disney magic around a sleepy child dropping in to lullaby induced sleep. So pretty ... CayCay
