She Won’t Give In

I walk you back and forth

You still fight it

The sleep that is trying  to overcome you

I keep walking you in hopes you will give in

Still, you fight it, crying, kicking and screaming

Not letting the sleep take you

My heart breaks that you are crying

That you won’t fall asleep


Are you afraid we won’t be here when you wake

That will never happen, as long as I have a breath

No matter what I say, you still fight it

It’s only sleep

I can only imagine how you will fight the world

When it tries to wrong you

I know you won’t give in

Your voice will be heard

I’m proud to know you are a fighter

But for now my dear please fall asleep

As I rock you back and forth, you finally start to drift away

I watch my little fighter finally go to sleep
