Sweet Heart

Goodnight sweetheart
Just let me sleep to the beat of your heart
For it’s the greatest peace I know
To hear your heartbeat beating slow.

The most reassuring sound on earth
Is to hear the heart that eases hurt
Rest assured I know its worth
Keep it secured up in its berth.

Let its beat sing me to sleep
I let it in deep, my heads in a heap
In it creeps, and a grin it peeps
In it seeps, one of life’s great treats.
