My night has come and I must sleep

I feel it call, that darkness deep

Though I'll not see another day

I pray, my love, please do not weep


There's still so much for us to say

But words cannot our love convey

So rest a while, beside me lie

Wait with me as I drift away


There's no more time to laugh or cry

To kiss, to hold, to question why

Please in your heart I beg you keep

These final words, this last goodbye



I welcome feedback, good or bad,

so please take a moment to share your thoughts
