The night is here. It brings us stars that dip in our path,
It brings us dark inside the world of our mind.
It takes the dreams we have and lets them fall or fly,
It takes the thoughts and leaves us all in light.
It makes the souls wander and seek for steps that left no trace behind,
It makes us hide in our hearts and steal the silence of the sky.
It gives us words to soothe the sea we locked inside and eyes to see the boats ahead of us,
It gives us answers and the moon to sweeten our truth.
It slips the fear in our plans and points us the end,
It slips the grief in our smiles and thorns to cut beginnings we once had.
It climbs the lad of our life and dwells to take the joy outside,
It climbs the way to our doubts and cleans the emptiness we carry all around.
It knows the hopes we nurture when we lose ourselves in time,
It knows the edges of our ground and all the stones we’ve stumbled on.
But when we dive in disbelief we are the ones to know that night is only there to guide.
A night is not an end. It comes, but then it goes away.

  11. The night is only there to guide…
    It brings, it takes,
    It makes, it gives,
    It slips, it climbs,
    It knows: it comes, it goes…
    🙂
