A Suburban Night

I’m up and it’s dark

And right outside

A streetlamp shines

And the Night confides

Tales of rest

Of dreams and wonder

Of snores and pillows

But me, I ponder

 

My sweet child

Awake in the dark

What’s upset you?

A dream, a whisper,

A lark?

 

Are you hungry?

Or are you sad?

Or did you ‘waken

Feeling bad?

 

I am here,

You’re in my arms

You call me to you

Not without charms;

 

You find my breast

My warm embrace.

The streetlamp shines

Off your lovely face.

 

At peace once more

For the comfort you seek

Is right here now

Right next to your cheek.

 

I’ll always be here

To give that to you

Always and again

‘slong as you need to.

 

You’ll want for naught

Surrounded with love

I am here for you

My small Little Dove.
