Night

Night

The night brings peace
           silence and the promise
of deep sleep :
           it brings an end
to the evils of the day
           and hope for a better
day to come
           and it brings you
with your soft breath
           on my face
our bodies huddled
           together in the darkness
and it brings the confirmation
           of love and the certainty
that whatever the cost
           life is always worth living
