Nightmares (Draft 2)
Dearest precious child with nightmares,
I have a white-light love to envelop you.
Let me reach you in the dark night,
so you touch my dreams for you,
my lovely child.
I tell you: you are strong against monsters,
just because I know you’ll hold onto my love,
and blue eyes, my sacred child,
take my sword of love and
fight every dragon, please, dearest.
