In The Stillness of the Night

In The Stillness of the Night © Mark A. Lowery 1998

 

Night…
stillness, pale
quiet moonlight
filtering
through window bare
laying here,
our arms…our bodies
entwined
time, fleeting
love, sweet love’s
power
dispels
the darkness…
calming,
what?
who knows?
in love’s embrace
fear not
sleep my love,
deep and peaceful,
wrapped in
love’s sweet embrace.
