Lullaby for the dead

Like the sun quenched its first dawning
The moon lost to the sea
Like the dew lost unto the morning
So you, my love, were lost to me

I can hear now the pipers calling
On that far distant shore
And my tears now like leaves are falling
And I will see your face no more

You are sleeping, you are sleeping
Oh, no sleep or peace can comfort me
I am weeping, oh, I am weeping
‘Til I will sleep in sleep with thee

Seoithín seo hó, seoithín seó
Seoithín seo, seoithín ó
Seoithín seo hó, ó seoithín seó
‘Til I will sleep in sleep with thee

Love,
Matthew
