Answer: The speaker of these lines is the narrator of the poem. The narrator of the poem seems to be either a parent or a teacher or someone who is much advanced in years to the person being spoken in the poem. We know this because the narrator says ‘my child’, and also because of the manner in which the narrator says that his song will continue to soothe the listener even after he is no longer in this world.

Answer: By this line the narrator means that even after he has passed away, his song will continue to speak to the person being spoken to in the poem and fill him/her with comfort. These words refer to the immortal quality of music, art and literature, which can survive the tides of time and continue to nourish generations with its quality.
