September Rain


Watching the day disappear,
The restless rain does fall,
Upon the ground,
Reflecting the night of the city,
In the vast, tall, place,
That I am found.

Silence fills the empty streets,
I've passed this way before,
Time and again,
Walking to a place called nowhere,
In the cold, dark, dank,
September rain.

I watch the advertising signs,
Changing to the heartbeat,
Of city night,
Colours of the brands and logos,
On the large, wide, boards,
Do shine so bright.

They try to hypnotise my mind,
But they have no meaning,
They're just a stain,
Of the city that now is sleeping,
Through the cold, dark, dank,
September rain.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
