As the darkness fell
Like a blanket onto the small city,
the lights turned on,
shining stars on the earth,
forming constellations of their own.
Silent footsteps on the cobbled street,
leading to places unknown.
The time for predators, of death
The time to grieve,
silent tears on your pillow case
The time of dreams
to carry you away to magical places.
The night is more than a time,
it is a world, it is a home.
It is more than just the moon and stars,
It is a plce for you and me,
A place for you and me….
