Rue's lullaby

Here is Rue's lullaby from the Hunger Games. This is straight from the book. So yeah it's the scene word by word from the book:

"I gave a small cough, swallow hard, and began:

Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open the sun will rise.
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from any harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tommorow brings them true Here is the place were I love you

Rue's eyes have fluttered shut. Her chest moves but only slightly. My throat releases tears and they slide down my cheek. But I have to finish the song for her.

Deep in the medow, hidden away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when again it's morning, They'll wash away
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here daisies guard you from every harm

The final lines are barely audible.

Here your dreams are sweet and tommorow brings them true. Here is the place were I love you."

Yes that was from the book. I seriously have it in my hands right now. Hope you like. :D
BTW I'm crying right now... *sniff* My third time reading this and I still cry...
I DO NOT CLAIM THE HUNGER GAMES OR THE SONG.
