The Night

I bring about the darkness

that you see as the end

you go to bed and shield your eyes 

from pains you put me in


I bring about the darkness 

the one that sends you off

yet still you dream of light, 

for I am nothing but a trough


I bring about the darkness

amazing but not complete

because for you I’ve made the stars and moon

and this I would repeat


I bring about the darkness

I steal you from the light

I swaddle you so gently

so no more you’ll have to fight


I bring about the darkness

I am the bottom line

I do these things because I care for your happiness,

not mine
