Yet Another Night - Poem by Arti Chopra

As the dark shadows slowly lengthen,
in the softly fading amber light,
its the end of another beautiful day,
and yet another welcome night.

as the night breeze, scatters the heavenly scents,
and the purple dusk welcomes the silvery moon,
the silvery clouds sail gently across the night sky,
which will be filled with glittering stars very soon.

as the lights begin to softly twinkle,
in the many houses dotted on the landscape,
the night takes on a magical ambience,
as if cloaked by a dark crimson cape.

as I turn sleepily, into your welcoming arms,
and snuggle into the pillow of your chest,
it comes to me yet again, in a flash,
this part of the day is what is best.

as the curtains flutter softly in the gentle breeze,
and my thoughts lazily review the day,
a soft lassitude overcomes me, and I reach out,
to express my love for you.... my way

its a closeness unlike any other,
a bonding, born of a love immense...
the night too, gathers us in its embrace,
dissolving all, that is unpleasant or tense.

and I drift into a restful slumber,
giving thanks for each blessing, God has showered,
and I know that this love of ours is so wondrous,
like a tree that has flowered and flowered.

yet another night, restful and comforting,
miracle moments in the aeons of time,
eventful days and memorable nights strung together,
is what makes our lives sublime.
