The Dying Of The Light - Poem by Guy Richard Baldwin

i watched the sun fade and die
in a dismal sky
and the darkness come creeping in
darkness the like of which i'd never seen
crept right in, pouring it's way through
my thinning skin
a brittling coldness
pervaded my soul
seeping through to my very bone
i'd never been this alone
why did you leave?
you were my light
and now that you're gone
nothing is left to me, except the night.

    and now that you're gone
    nothing is left to me, except the night.

    I cant describe these, but can only feel

    when the twilight touches the soul
    when the delight of life is filled with hole
    then you kneel to pray before the almighty soul
    with hearts in your hand and faith in your calls........
