Sleep on, oh my dear sleep on!
For days and nights are gone
Your dreams and struggles did
Hope peace and laughter won
Sleep on for the morning now.
Sleep on, ah my Dove sleeps on
Though time on earth is fun
You’ll miss you your favourite songs
For the hands of time are gone
And your work on earth is done.
Sleep on, ooh my love sleep on!
Hope you’ll cherish those moments
The sorrows and tears we together bear
Those time of love and fun we’d shared
Hope our love will always remain dear.
Sleep on, sleep on, sleep on
What more now can I say?
When smiles and sorrows shared
With those, you took so dearly
Sleep on my heart, farewell with tears.
