When Darkness Falls

When darkness falls
I look up to the night sky
Listening to the moon.

It seems so short a time you been gone
Times moves on with you
Without us

On brights nights like this
I can almost hear your voice in the wind
Almost see your eyes in the stars

This brings me peace for awhile
For awhile I feel close to you
Wrapped once more in your arms

Stars reign in the nights veil
Stepping stones that lead me to you
The pale moon smiles approving of my dream

And dream I will this night and always
dreaming of you as you and I were
dreaming till we are together once more

A sad and sweet dream. Love without arms to embrace it--makes me sad.

This was sad, and yet beautiful. Love the resolve you express in the last few lines.

Melancholy and yet not hopeless at all. Nice work, Melanie!
