Cherish the nights!


The inky blue darkness
descended on me
It was time to let go
and blend into the fading lights.


It was the time to forgive
the moments of the day
and then who could say
what in the next few hours lay?


It took me long moments
To unwind
Thoughts, and fears out aside
Welcoming the beauty of the night


What should I make
for breakfast and later
Will he come early tonight
Or later than ever?


Read through the crawling words
of the fairytale and heroes
Eyes drooped into a close
Till I could think no more.


Sleep, beauty soul
Think not what lies ahead
Cherish the wonders
you've been gifted instead.
