Our Family Lullaby

My father used to sing a lullaby

I sing the same to my son

But I don’t think that he will comply

And sing it to his son

He falls asleep in a minute

As soon as my song’s begun

He’s never heard the whole of it

End of a tradition

  1. This one is really tricky. In a way it’s funny if the child fell asleep while the father’s singing. Another is that the poem is painful, as if the child will never be able to complete the song. (Just my own interpretation).
