Doves’ Lullaby

Doves’ Lullaby

Mourning doves will cry for me
As I do now so quietly
When I am free you’ll see me cry
Until then— doves’ lullaby.

They cry the sounds of grieving hearts
And wish that souls not stay apart
They cry for those who are in pain
And long for joy once again.

Mourning doves will cry for us
For those enduring tie and truss
When we’re free we’ll sing and fly
Until then— doves’ lullaby.
