Be Still (Pantoum)

We watch the day fade slowly into night,
in silence standing by this open gate.
Afraid, as if to speak would chase the light.
I have to go; you know it's getting late.

In silence standing by this open gate
your head pressed ever softly on my chest.
I have to go; you know it's getting late.
Why are sad things so often for the best?
