A Perfect Night


A walk through the night
Before it gives birth to her own day
Just the night
Just me in the night
And few stars adorning her in her darkness.

My thoughts run far and wide
Shall I live alone in this lonely night?
My heart craves for a company.
And in the night I see light.
A full moon.
With a beautiful shining face in the darkness.

How shall I describe thee? .
One of a kind.
Seen once in a blue moon.
Wonderfully made.
A knight in the night.
Even birds serenade thee.
Exalted is your smile.
That lights up a weary mind.

I'm never alone again in the night.
Is this how it feels to be in d-light?
A night every day wants to be her.
A perfect night.
I imagine

Poem of the Day

Far south the lift,
