Ringing out the circle of life

Hear The Bells

by BlueMarble

Joseph's Star Contest Winner 

Hear them chime  
Singing out sweet dreams  
They’re calling to the children  
Through the night their soft voice sings
Fairies humming tunes  
Guarding sleep  

Shrill alarm
Jarring, screaming noise
Another sleepless night ends
A new day of toil begun
Youth has flown away
Broken dreams

Heaven’s chimes
Angels sing above
Songs of beauty, love and joy
Calling softly to come home
Songs of open arms
Freedom waits
