Sleep My Baby

Sleep My Baby

Sleep my baby, in your cot 
Sadly to feed you, I’ve nothing got                                                       
Your helpless mama, quietly weeps 
Little milk and bread, is all I need

Sleep my baby, in your cot
This world is of, haves and have-nots
Our life we live, on faith and hope 
That gives us strength, life’s strifes to cope 

Birds too find, for their young ones crumbs 
O! Why so difficult, to feed my loved ones 
Are you dreaming, about milk and cake
The smile on your face, is it fake? 

Sleep my baby, in your cot
Someday we will, have food filled pot(s)
A new dawn is, about to break
Pray! It takes away, our pain and aches.
