In the arms of the sleepless night
I unearth solace, an eternal delight!
resting on the velvety green carpet
the midnight dews kiss my breast
in the whistling of the fragrant winter breeze
Am losing my senses, oh time, please freeze.
the nocturnal birds sing that old melancholic hymn
and once again I lose my battle to the bygone time
the gleeful night embrace the luminous orb
basking in her shimmering light I admire her, unperturbed.
silhouette of the ruddy blossoms shine in my welled eyes
how can this turbulent spirit sleep ignoring the heart’s cries
the placid lake stealthily touch the damp slope
someplace deep in her bottom, she clutches to that forlorn hope.
tucked beneath the warm quilt when the world sleeps
shedding her withered petals, this lovelorn heart peeps
she has now befriended the solitary, tranquil night
that flutters to nothingness with the early rays of daylight.
So, every time, I unearth solace, an eternal delight
in the arms of my amigo, the sleepless night!💚
