As Evening Falls - Poem by John Paul Ang

As evening falls,
I can hear the voice of Sleep as she
Inv iting me once more in slumber,
To give another dream for me to
Before i close my sleepy eyes,
I take a quick glimpse at the stars in
the skies.
I marvel at the beauty of the darkness
above, glittering with starlights that i love.

I had already said my goobyes to the sun
And i said my greetings to the moon as
she shun.
Illuminatin g heaven's dark veil,
Hoping that her light would never ever

As my eyelids close,
The cold west wind blows.
Giving me a comforting grave chill,
all in accordance to my will.

At last, my world is dreanched in
M y body succumbs to a fleeting numbness.
I can feel no sorrow nor pain.
In my new world, i cant even feel the
wind and the rain.

In this land of dreams,
all my fantasies are filled to their
I f only i could exist in this place
If only i could be in this utopia as a
In this place,
I cant help but only to be amazed,
Everythin g i can ever hope for is here,
..but soon they will all disappear..

A s sun again rises from the east,
Bringing an end to this temporary bliss.
Waking me up from my solemn sleep,
With all the memories of my dreams to

I shall again wait for another night,
Wait for another break from the burdens
of life
To escape from this tedious reality,
Towards my blissful fantasy. cause that's the only place where i
can be with you.
Where we share a love so sinfully true.
A love absolutely sacred and divine,
Essense of agape, where you are forever
