When I was little. My mother used to sing me a song.

Go to sleep
My dear sweet Stephanie
For Jesus is watching over you.
Don't be afraid
For Jesus
Jesus is watching over you.

According to Jewish tradition the origin of the word lullaby is "Lilith-abi".

Lilith is a demon who stole the souls of children during their sleep.

But most lullabies from medieval Britain were associated with Jesus.

A child's soul was stolen away from me.

I hope you understand Rebecca. You saw it yourself. I can't stay with you any longer.

I killed myself.

And I had no lullaby sung to me.

Neither did I ever think to sing to Hannah. Now I regret it. I regret everything.

He made me kill myself Rebecca.

I am literally dead.
