Tonight After Midnight

When darkness and shadow come creeping in

I think of you and my night begins

I close my eyes and silence comes

The strains – they fade

And tranquility hums

And then I see you

There is peace to find

You appear quite clearly, there, in my mind

You sit there by my sleepy hollow

You sit there by my bed

And in your hand you hold a rose

Of softest deepest red

And all the night long you smile

You’re there it seems for eternity

Until morning comes and calls to me

    1. It’s very comforting sometimes to imagine those who we can’t be with, for whatever reason, getting us through the night or day. Aww, thank you for your thoughtful comment Nanette, it’s much appreciated.
