Did You See The Night?

February 25, 2013

Lucy ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Did you see the night?
Did you see it as it crept
Atop of daylight
Covering each day
With darkness of the night?

Did you see the night?
Morose and sad
Bleeding sympathy to the mad
Whispering night floating through
Corridors filled with sounds
Made to scare, do beware.

Did you see the night?
As it gently held lost souls
Til daylight could unfold
Washing ‘way cold misery
Never to be told.

Yes, I have seen the night
Soft and full of promise
Stars twinkling
In bright nightlight
I did, I did see the night.
