The Midnight Sea


The Midnight Sea

The evening falls heavily

And with great uncertainty

An all-encompassing darkness

That flickers and grows

Where in a black conspiracy

Nothing appears as it was

And we are careless of time

Of place, and of reality

Thoughts carry me gently

Across the endless sea

And the trees whisper your name

When the winds ask

The sound paints in my mind

A long familiar picture

Arranged in such a way

That gives the illusion of melody

When the moon casts down its shadows

Into the night

And a window opens

Onto the aching, midnight sea

Again with you

I long to lie and watch the stars

Then we have exceeded heaven

And ecstasy has taken flight
