Sweet child of mine

Why would you ask me if the stars are lonely,
If a world without love would be better than ours,
From which corner of your heart do these questions come,
Questions that no man would have an answer to

All I have is a touch that tries to say it’s all right
It’s all right to not understand the world we see
There are many days to figure out the answers
And one of the days you’ll see, you don’t need to

Why greet with love every passing stranger
Why trust a smile when it faked with such ease
Why my child, do you see such good in all people
It worries me how you walk into all the stretched out arms

I have walked amongst lies for so long now
The truth in your eyes often makes me cry
Why have I learnt so much that all I can teach is deceit
Tell your eyes not to try to teach me to smile

Sleep my child for your dreams are free
Dream it all before the world takes them away
Or perhaps you shall fight against those who teach us to fight
Fight for your choice to not fight at all

I am sorry my child, for this is the world I must give you
Wish there was another world closer to the heavens
For now sleep and dream the dreams only you still can
I shall stay awake to keep the nightmares away
