​Lullabye Under The Willow

This song is by Amy Speace.

Please, don't go, my darling
The stars will stow your shadow beneath the trees!
No need to leave, it's only the crows and thieves
Who know about our grief.
And do not be afraid of the day's first light
As you watch it rise by my side!
The wolves all fled, that's what the night owl said
While whispering in my ear!
And what's unsaid, we'll bury beneath the mossy roots
Of the willow tree!
Lay me down on her soft damp ground
Teach me what lovers know!
Before you go if you must go!

Don't delay
Nor hesitate while I wait for you by the crooked stone.
Love may not fade,
But it could stray while you take the measure of your home.
Doors could close,
If you linger, you might hold just a broken piece
Of this make believe!

So please, don't go, my darling
The stars will stow your shadow beneath the trees!
Far asleep, I promise I will keep
Your shadow good company!
My love, don't leave!
My love, don't leave!
