    Dez 17 2009, 13h17

    بی آشیانه گشتم
    خانه به خانه گشتم
    بی تو همیشه با غم
    شانه به شانه گشتم
    عشق یگانه من
    ازتو نشانه من
    بی تو نمک ندارد
    شعرو ترانه من

    سرزمین من
    خسته خسته از جفایی
    سرزمین من
    دردمند بی دوایی

    سرزمین من
    بی سرود و بی صدایی
    سرزمین من

    سرزمین من
    کی رگ تو را گشوده؟
    سرزمین من
    کی به تو جفا نموده؟
    سرزمین من
    خنده های تو ربوده؟
    سرزمین من

    ماه و ستاره من
    راه دوباره من
    درهمه جا نمیشه
    بی تو گذاره من
    گنج تو را ربودند
    از برعشرت خود
    قلب تو را شکستند
    هرکه به نوبت خود

    سرزمین من
    مثل چشم انتظاری
    سرزمین من
    مثل قلب داغداری
    سرزمین من
    مثل دشت پُرغباری
    سرزمین من
    سرزمین من
    خسته خسته از جفایی
    سرزمین من
    دردمند بی دوایی
    سرزمین من
    بی سرود و بی صدایی
    سرزمین من

    سرزمین من
    کی رگ تو را گشوده؟
    سرزمین من
    کی به تو جفا نموده؟
    سرزمین من
    خنده های تو ربوده؟
    سرزمین من
    سرزمین من
    مثل چشم انتظاری
    سرزمین من
    مثل قلب داغداری
    سرزمین من

    A hug is how you know a friend is real.

    Christmas Lullaby

    Sweet peace, sweet peace, your gift on Christmas Eve
    Sweet child, sweet child, it came so long ago
    When Jesus Christ was born as we believe
    In Bethlehem, our Savior, Lord we know
    Sweet peace, sweet peace on every Christmas day
    Sweet child, sweet child, you’ll wake to find it’s true
    That Jesus Christ, the star that lights our way
    Was born and lived and died for me and you
    Sweet peace, sweet peace is Christmas filled with love
    Sweet child, sweet child, to watch your sleeping smile
    To know that Jesus loves us from above
    And sent you here with me a little while
    Sweet peace, sweet peace, the gift you are to me
    Sweet child, sweet child, may Jesus be to thee

    Lullaby Tears

    Your tears are warm because they come from you
    And you are warm and safe within my arms
    Your tears are wet, but I can dry them too
    And hold you close and keep you safe from harm
    Don’t cry, don’t cry, I’ll hold you close today
    Don’t cry, don’t cry, I’ll wipe your tears away
    Your tears are soft as gentle summer rain
    And you are soft, more soft than any tears
    Your tears are yours, but I can share your pain
    And hold you close and wipe away your fears
    Don’t cry, don’t cry, I’ll hold you soft and still
    Don’t cry, don’t cry, I promise that I will
    I’ll always hold you safely through the years
    And always gently wipe away your tears

    Lullaby Kiss

    I’ll kiss you now and then when you’re asleep
    I’ll kiss your forehead, brushing back your hair
    One kiss to wipe away and one to keep
    And one more kiss to take you safely there
    A kiss to bring you comfort in your dreams
    A kiss to guard your heart throughout the night
    A kiss is always more than what it seems
    And kisses are what give the stars their light
    I’ll kiss you now and then when you’re asleep
    I’ll kiss your forehead, brushing back your hair
    One kiss to wipe away and one to keep
    And one more kiss to take you safely there
    I’ll kiss you now and then when you’re asleep
    One kiss to wipe away and one to keep

    Love and Blankets - A Warm Lullaby

    It’s cold outside tonight; I’ll keep you warm
    with love and blankets piled high and deep.
    The darkened clouds will bring a chilling storm
    but wrapped in love and blankets you will sleep.
    Against the walls the wind begins to blow;
    upon the windows frost begins to creep;
    above the roof the clouds begin to snow,
    but wrapped in love and blankets you will sleep.
    I’ll keep you warm as long as winter stays.
    I’ll keep you warm though night should freeze above.
    I’ll bring you dreams of sunny summer days,
    and warm your soul with lullabys of love.
    I’ll warm your soul with lullabys to sleep,
    with love and blankets piled high and deep.

    New Lullaby

    I long for words to sing sublime, sublime,
    for words that travel far from distant deeps,
    enlightened through the night in time, in time,
    and whisper beauty to the one who sleeps.
    I long for words to sing of peace, of peace,
    of peace that carries boughs of strength and truth
    suffused with love that will not cease, not cease,
    with love that starts in loving songs of youth.
    I long for words to sing alive, alive,
    renewed when wearied by a weary road
    and like a spirit-sun revive, revive
    the soul that bends beneath the heavy load.
    I long for words of joy to sing, to sing,
    for all the joys of life such words will bring.

    Lullaby Song

    So wish, so wish, and I will wish with you
    To sleep, to sleep, our day will soon be through
    And if the night will grant our wish of sleep
    We’ll dream, we’ll dream, of oceans warm and deep

    Be still, be still, and let my swaying arms
    Surround, surround, and keep you safe from harm
    And if the night is still it will surround
    Our hearts, our hearts, within a silent sound

    So shine, so shine, as heaven’s brightest star
    Tonight, tonight, although it may seem far
    For if its light will shine on us tonight
    In peace, in peace, the glow of love is bright

    Sweet song, sweet song of love that glows so bright
    In peace, in peace, sleep peacefully tonight

    Lullaby Whispers

    As I lean down to tuck you into bed
    And kiss your cheek, and kiss your sleepy head,
    I hope you know I’m glad that we’re so near,
    And so I whisper softly in your ear:
    I hope you know I’m glad that we’re so near,
    And I can whisper softly in your ear.

    As you begin to close your weary eyes
    And as your dreams begin with gentle sighs
    I hope you know I love you and adore
    And so I whisper this to you once more:
    I hope you know I love you and adore
    And I will whisper this to you once more.

    So sleep and let my whispers linger still,
    And so the hopes I’ve whispered always will.

    Lullaby Dreams

    Within your eyes I see awaiting dreams;
    Flow on, flow on into their waiting streams,
    On ships of gold that sail into the night,
    And drift to shores where everything is bright.

    Bright shores of dreams are waiting there for you,
    So sleep and may your golden dreams come true.

    Within your heart I know the dreams you keep;
    Hold on, hold on to them within your sleep.
    Your heart of gold will shine forever bright,
    And in your dreams will be your guiding light.

    Bright shores of dreams are waiting there for you,
    So sleep and may your golden dreams come true.

    Bright shores where all your golden dreams come true,
    So sleep, so sleep, they’re waiting there for you.

    Lullaby Wish



    The sky is full of wishes in the night
    When all the evening stars are burning bright
    When everything you wish just might come true
    And all I wish is just to be with you

    Now close your eyes and wish upon a star
    And everything is close that once was far
    Then all your wishes will be closer too
    And all I wish is just to be with you

    May all your sleep be filled with wishful dreams
    Of soft and gentle ever-flowing streams
    Of love and luck in everything you do
    And all I wish is just to be with you

    May all your dreams and wishes soon come true
    And all I wish is just to be with you

    Lullaby Blessing

    Goodnight my son, may beauty fill your dreams
    Remember through the night your mother’s kiss
    Like gentle water flows through gentle streams
    And gentle rain proceeds from gentle mists
    Goodnight my son, may angels guard your peace
    And may an angel always sing for you
    And may the songs she sings make love increase
    The love for one becomes the love for two
    Goodnight my son, the child of my day
    The joy that fills my heart and makes me smile
    Goodnight my son, these final words I’ll say
    Then leave you to your sleeping for a while
    I wish that I could always hold you tight
    And always wish your soul a sweet goodnight

But, one night while watching television, 7-year-old Yngwie saw a television special about guitar maestro Jimi Hendrix, and it was all over. Jimi's death had spurred the birth of a new guitar hero: Yngwie J. Malmsteen.
