When Darkness Falls

by braveandrecklessblog

Darkness has settled in

Surrounds me

The cold outside our four snug walls

Frosts our windows

Turns snow into a hard, white crust

The day has been long my love

I have been doing battle with the world today

I have been doing battle with myself

 

My body is bone-tired

My heart aches

My soul is weary

And exhausted tears are a heartbeat away

Will you hold me close to your chest

Lend me your strength?

Cup my face tenderly

Before kissing my forehead, my lips?

 

May I lay on your broad shoulder, clasped in your arms

While you whisper me a goodnight story?

Can you sing me a love song

That you wrote just for me?

Will you remind me

That you are mine

And I am yours

That when we are together we are always home?

 

Can you gently remind me

That I am a woman

Worthy of your poetry

Worthy of your love?

Until I am able to still my mind

And drift off

Into peaceful slumber

Under your watchful gaze. . .
