this night – By: D.e.e.L

the night has fallen
its darkness has come
i lay here thinking
of how soon i’ll turn numb
lose sight of the world
for a few hours of peace
perhaps dream of past wishes
or futures to greet
i’ll wake up in morning
shower and eat
put on my shoes
and leave the house neat
stick to the road
work a full day
come home to words
and then nightfall shall lay
to rest again
i will befall
i’ll forever lay here
and sleep through it all
but only at night
and i’ll rise to each day
so i’ll cherish this sleep
this night
and tomorrow’s day
