Put me to sleep

My love, will you sing me a lullaby?
That makes me sleep and not care about the day I wake.
In your soft palms, I wish to rest my head,
And forget that mind can actually think.
I wish to snuggle in your blanket,
And glue my feet to yours.
For I wish to believe we are conjoined, if only for the night!
There is not an iota of my body that I want to leave behind,
There is not a part that I don't want to carry,
For every kosher bit of mine is waiting to be enlightened by your relic!
O my lover, please put me to sleep,
Sing me a lullaby,
For its in your voice, I find my rest.
For that's where the nightingale finds its nest.
