Song of the Dawn and Morning

Long is the night and fleet is the dawn
That proceeds when the sun's set and the beauty has gone
The lights form your eyes, they dim and they fade
The happiness gone, the fear now remade

The sea's waves are frozen- no whisper of waves
To soften lead tears falling from a blank face
You said don't look back, and to live for today,
But the stone tears still lighten me as they fall away

Remembering the moon 'twas reflected in your eyes
You smile that shone brighter than the orb in the sky
Friends we have been, and friends we'll remain
A bond that still holds, now devoid of the pain

Long is the night and bleak is the road
But a light's up ahead- a promise bestowed
Upon us, my love, now soft as a dove
Kiss me and follow it home.
