“Come Walk With Me Beneath The Stars”

Come walk with me beneath the stars,
And we’ll watch our breath rising to
Meet the moon above.

Come walk with me beneath the stars,
And count the constellations that
Are familiar, and name our own.

Come walk with me beneath the stars,
And wonder at the age and the
Depth of the universe.

Come walk with me beneath the stars,
And hold your hand in mine, our
Fingers intertwined.

Come walk with me beneath the stars,
And we’ll sing songs that echo to
The sky and distant mountains.

Come walk with me beneath the stars,
And we’ll walk throughout the
Night, and leave the world behind.

“And So Begins The Long Night”

And so begins the long night, for though the sun
May rise and set a thousand times, until I hear
Your voice again, whispering into my ear, the
Morning will not return.

And so begins the long night, when I find I am
Alone, lost in the darkness and so uncertain
Of which way I need to go without your hand
Reaching out for mine.

And so begins the long night, and I am now
Unable to sleep, despite the silence that
Has fallen, and I pray that I might dream of
You, and find some comfort there.

There’s an incredible overwhelming
Silence that comes at 3 AM,
After the hum of the television
Dies. When the mind is free
To wander without the distractions
Of the day.

A stillness settles on the world,
Broken only by the soft scratch
Of a pen on paper.

Outside the darkness rests upon
The field of fallen white,
But the wind has passed,
And the storm is at an end,
And the fire is now but embers,
And in the fading light I strive
To make some memory of it all.
