THE LONG NIGHT

HOWLINGWOLF

 

The wind howls at my window,

Like wolves in the woods.

Demons upon my walls in shadow

From branches outside the panes.

Darkness comes early, haunting; cold,

Making the night longer.

Mysterious dreams in sleep unfold,

Causing my heart to beat too fast.

I awaken, startled, frightened and wary.

Hope has faded in sleep,

But now, awake, new hope I carry.

Waiting, still, for morning’s light.

Too oft the nights seem so long

Without your arms to hold me.

But when you appear I know I was wrong

For you were never far away.
