Draiocht (Sleep Spell)
by Sheri Lynn Gleason
Age Group: Adult
Close your eyes and sleep, my love
You don't need to be a hero tonight
Rest your head and your heart
Forget your troubles, forget your fight
I will protect you, my Diarmuid
No harm will come to you, a chroi
No spirit's rage will disturb your repose
Not as long as you're with me
Trust in me and surrender
Give yourself over to sleep
You are safe here in my arms
Any secrets you whisper, I will keep
Gra chomh milis le siucra...
Gra chomh laidir le uisce beatha.

Author's Notes: This piece was inspired by "The Pursuit of Diarmuid and Grainne". I apologise to any Irish speakers reading this. I know that I missed some accent marks. My word processing program isn't set up for that.
