Night's Promise

The night has drawn her cloak, tight

Against all hope and all fear.

Both emotions craving light,

Shall return when dawn is near.

For now just listen to it

How our two hearts beat as one.

For now live in the moment

As our night has just begun.

The hands of the clock are still

As though time drew in a breath

And the night is ours to kill-

Countless hours ’til her death.

Let’s forget this hour will end

And simply live within it

Oh to heaven, we’ll ascend

A few times every minute.

Moonlight rakes her hand across

Your shoulders, and then your eyes

I’m sure she will feel at loss

As the sun begins to rise.

Feel my breath now match your own

Sense my whole soul shiver

Your love, the greatest I’ve known

Quenches fire in its river.

At the windows fingers reach

Telling me time has returned.

Light begins to flood and bleach-

The midnight oil all burned.

I lay my head upon your chest

Falling down into your sleep,

Knowing when I’ve had my rest

I’ve got promises to keep

Night's Promise
