Berceuse Bird

Berceuse: lullaby; song used to put someone to sleep
Berceuse Bird,
Singer of songs,
Gentle lullaby,
Lulls me to sleep,
Your tonic to dominant,
Soothes my soul.

You sing to me,
Your song so simple,
But so very deep,
It makes my heart keep,
Calm and soft,
To its gentle beat.

You need no fanciness,
No chromaticism,
Your breath glides over my skin,
Your melody stays,
Within my head,
For me to teach,
To spread your love.

Berceuse Bird,
Never leave me,
Sing your song every night,
Leave your tattoo imprinted on my skin,
Gentle inflections,
Sheer perfection.
