In Love With Night

It's far too dark now for sorrows, for

sorrows born before evening.

As hours spin to night; the tears born in

the light of day have gone away.

 

It's far too late now for worries, for

troubles before the twilight.

As hours turn to night, the tears born

under day-time's gaze are soon away.

 

It's later now, as we slide closer

to close of day,

removing the velveteen cloak of day.

It falls away, as we slip deeper

into the night.

 

A lingering touch in the dark now,

is twice held, is thrice held,

here in the night's end.

The night takes a lover, and the lover

serves the night.
