A Bedtime story By Beverly Martin This is a story

I think you need to hear

Let me hold you so closely

Soft words in your ear

A story of love

But not like in the books

No castles and princes

With boyish good looks

No sword fights or horses

No goblins or ghouls

No servants or slaves

No jesters or fools

This is a story

That one day you will know

My words though will fade

You’ll get older and grow

A story of love

But not like in the songs

No heart broken lovers

Singing tunes of their wrongs

This story is true

Not a page from a book

No princess or tower

No a pirate with a hook

This story is simple

Yet so many forget

As life, it gets busy

On this you could bet

A story of Love

Of dark and of light

Of heroes and villains

Who battle and fight

Of flowers and rainbows

Of a heart that beats strong

Of beauty and wonder

Of right and of wrong

A story of Love

Made of flowers and trees

Of forests and mountains

Of lakes and the seas

Of fires and healing

As the flames burn with glory

The beauty that lies

Right here in this story

This story is short

There is no time to waste You must go out and live So much life you must taste This story of love Of happy and sad Of laughter and tears Of the good and the bad Of birds in the sky And the life on the ground Of plants that give healing As the wind gives it sound Of music and dancing Of sweet sleeping dreams I’m sure you must wonder What all of this means One day you’ll think back Learn again what I say It’s not really forgotten Just buried away For this story of love Not a bit of it’s new Within lies a secret The Story is you All life is in balance Each soul a reflection And when the time comes You’ll feel the connection To the earth to the wind To the the sea and the skies The secret comes clear Just look into my eyes To the fire that burns To the wave crashing sea Deep down we all know I’m in you, You’re in me You can never be lost May you never be lonely May life treat you kind I want love for you only This story of Love May it strengthen your soul To remind you one day You have always been whole This story of Love This story of you Of secrets and souls I can tell you it’s true Sleep easy my love Close your eyes, rest your head I’ll whisper last words As you dream in your bed A secret so powerful Time passes, clocks spin.... All that you need Comes deep from within.

Lots of Love Bev x
