A Night That Will Not Stay


It's early in the morning the Sun is still asleep
The morning birds are singing a song fresh on their beaks
The morning wind is howling to chase the night away
And yet I am lamenting a night that cannot stay

Footsteps are a patter, the taxi blows it's horn
And all around, the world, is awakening to morn
The fog is slowly lifting, the Sun stretches it's rays
And yet I am mourning a night that will not stay

You held me for a minute whispered nothings in my ear
Sugared my heart with sweet words that tasted of beer
You told me that you loved me, held me through the night
But all I find beside me are pillows in the morning light

The Sun is at it's zenith, the world is full in bloom
Yet still I keep crying for a day that came too soon
You held me for a minute whispered nothings in my ear
But with the light of morning like the night you've disappeared.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
