The velvet night sky my perpetual partner
cradles lively eyes in its vast tender hands
millions of stars prance across and scatter
making this ebony beauty look so grand

Waves of dreams flock into a weary mind
slumber's voice lures me to its realm slowly
I break away from reality's grip and unwind
a soft mist whirls and consumes me gently

Wordless hymn sings, a promise of joy fills
senses lie naked as peace smilingly caresses
no threat in sight or lurking to make its kill
not even thunder can scare or cause distress

Conflict or gloom cannot swallow this moment
for everything is charmed by night's silent tune
from all worldly knowledge total abandonment
as I snuggle to bed on the beaming crescent moon
