Dusk Sonnet 1
The night keeps your memory by my side
A welcome ghost in the wake of your leave
I can’t touch you thought I admit I tried
Laying still I close my own eyes and grieve.
Daylight will break and show you’re gone once more
The bitter taste of your name on my lips
Worn from the endless calling I am sure
The light shines through and reality takes it’s grip.
What a toll the days have on me anymore
When it is you that is all I ask for.
