A Song to the Twilight

A Song to the Twilight


Ruby studded sky,

the horizon calls to me.

It knows my name by heart.

I have stood here all eternity,

watching the coral glow of evening,

as geese fly past the moon.

Stories of past lives

unfold before my eyes.

On the wings of imagination

my mind takes flight.

The night is my master.

The night is my friend.

It folds me in its warm embrace,

the darkness pulls me in,

like a lover waiting to be kissed.

I sing a song to the twilight

with voice soft and sweet.

Dancing stars join the refrain.

Night is my salvation,

its magic lives within.

Everlasting is its song

from beginning to the end.
