Creative: As the Night Fades

As the night fades to nothingness
And the nothingness fades back to light,
I sit alone staring at the sky
Lay ever infinitely away, ponder what I am thinking.

That laying before a heartless horizon I so adore
I am destined to be replaced,
And never to be traced,
Back to the chance for a paradise I never faced.

But I am to be comforted.

The sky will always sleep above me,
It guarding me forever,
Until that nothingness
never dies again…
And again…
And again…

Stars

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night
