The Night

I feel the night wrap her arms around me like
a warm blanket resting upon my shoulders

I see the stars twinkling like little lanterns in the sky

I feel the slight breeze of the night air as it brushes
my hair playfully against my cheek

I smell the dew as it has set in for the long nights

As I lay on my back and watch the night in all it's
magic I feel like the world is at peace with herself
and nothing could ever be wrong at that moment
in time

As I rise to go inside I gaze once more at the magic
carpet of lanterns lighting the sky for I know in a few
dim hours it will have passed by

Night time is a wondrous time when all is at peace
and time stands still it seems

Then wake to morning where twilight is no more
and rush through another day like the one before
