Hush and soothe this night away;
Kiss the velvet skies to day;
Hum a lullaby of peace
And let my love for you increase.
Smooth my cheek and rest awhile;
Sing a heart song, sleepy smile.
Hold me closer, kiss me soft;
Sweetly hold my dreams aloft;
Ease away the tautened worry;
Send the nightmares all a-scurry.
Rest inside me, deeply aching;
Bring me timeless, happy waking.
Slide my thoughts to touch your soul;
Open, pay this starry toll;
Kiss me gently, love me, please,
‘Til sun, and moon, and starlit seas
All bide their time as we embrace
And smile upon this one night’s grace.
