sleep my baby, close those dreamy eyes

Jake is tugging his baby Mille into bed, and she wants to listen to a story

jake:
looong ago in a kingdom far away
lived a king, who had everything but a smile

mille:
why didnt he have a smile ?

jake:
he had nothing to yearn for

mille:
woah

jake:
for he had everything

mille:
but love
right right

jake:
he is looking for something
he just does not know what
he walks across his kingdom
listening to his citizens
their worries, desire
to help his city grow

mille:
ahaan

jake:
one sunny day, around noon
you could see the sun shining up above the sky
he sees a sage, sitting under the shadow of a neem tree
meditating

mille:
what does the sage say ?

jake:
the kings sits, waiting for the sage to open his eyes.
and slowly the sun, moves across the sky
from a full noon, to a pleasant evening
the sage opens his eyes, and sees the king in front of him

mille:
wowww

jake:
the sage sees the king
all dressed in his royal robes , sitting on a flat patch on earth
the sage smiles, as he is pleasantly surprised by the humbleness of his king

mille:
why ?
why is he humble ?
cause he is around the common folk ?

jake:
for he sit on earth, with his fellow mates

mille:
Oooo ! yes, what a humble king.
then what happened ?

jake:
sage can see through the king's heart, and sees a heart yearning

mille:
aww

jake:
the kings has everything, but one to share it with, so says the king
for their is no one has humble as him, and no one around him who desires love over wealth
and can share the responsibility to run his kingdom

mille:
is there no one as humble as the king ?

jake:
the sage informs the kings, he needs to ride south
down the ravine, to the black river, for if he seeks his heart to be complete
and thus of his subjects.
the king is amazed

mille:
why so ?


jake:
for the sage sees the unseen


Jake sees Mille sleeping, and sings her a lullaby

Jake:
sleep my baby, close those dreamy eyes
angels up above, you looking at the skies
go to sleep my baby, close your pretty eyes
sandman is coming , to say goodnight

Jake kisses her, gives her a hug and tucks her in.
Lights fade out, and Jake walks out of Mille's room.
