PATHOS

Pennies for you eyes and lullabies for your ears
A kiss for your lips and a prayer for your fears.
Time has no meaning while you’re dreaming through the night.
Hold on to your dreams everything will be all right.
Open up your eyes and embrace a brand new day.
Suddenly at sunrise, dark clouds all drift away.
