Waiting For Daylight - Poem by Howard Camner

She waits for daylight
because the night is for dreamers
and she won't give in to that

The moon is an ornament
Something to gaze at, and nothing more

Stars are just holes in her darkness

She waits for daylight
because the night whispers warnings
It says things that can numb the soul
and take back promises

She waits for daylight
when the world opens for business
and noise drowns out silence

and me, I love her from here
and wait for the sky to fall
It keeps me grounded

and it's all I have left
