The feelings of the child (which represents us as human beings) in this poem are stated quite clearly.  The child is very ambivalent about the idea of being led off to bed (death).The child is half willing and half reluctant — he keeps looking back at what he is being led away from.  He is somewhat reassured by the promise of a better life (after death) but is not completely sure that it will be there.  He is not wise enough to understand the reality of what is to come and he is, therefore, reluctant (although not completely so).
