lament for the day

setting sun
please don’t go
sinking on the horizon
my heart is longing
thoughts of the day
reflecting from the clouds
in hues of orange and pink
rays reaching out
grabbing the ends of the earth
holding the four corners
hold in vain
slipping away
tears falling like stars
scattering on the
blank page of the evening sky
one by one they appear
a steady stream
one by one
now a hundred at a time
the world is hushed
i pull the darkness up around me
like a blanket
lay my head in the earth
dream of a kiss wet with dew
kissed by the morning herself
draw your sun out of bed
i am yours
