So Dark is the Night

The night falls early
The day exits fast
The glow of sunshine
Really doesnt last

Life trudges blearily on
Boots crunching the leaves
Stamping out hope and smiles
Leaving behind sadness and grief

The trees look empty, deserted
Bereft, hollow, like my heart
The grass is yellow, dry
Everything plays its part

Home seems too far away
The kindly faces, cheery and bright
So utterly precious are they
Moments, I now hold tight

The longing and loneliness persists
Fatigue and exhaustion my friends
The mind wonders and wanders
Twists, turns and gratefully bends

Into sleep, unrestful, restless
A sleep that's just a way
Temporarily into a cave of darkness
Only to wake up, to face another day
