Nightmares (Draft 1)
Dearest little child with nightmares
I have a white-light love to envelop you.
Let me touch you in the dark
with my dreams for you.
I tell you: you are strong against monsters,
just because I know you will hold on to my love,
and blue eyes, my sacred child,
take my sword of love and
fight every dragon, please, because I love you.
