what shadows tell me

I don’t want the night to end, because that’s when the stars are the brightest, and I know you hold me tightly even in your dreams. I don’t want it to end because that’s when my inner voice is the loudest ~ when Mother Nature tells her children to hush. I don’t want it to end, because I’m still in love with the darkness, and it is where the dancing shadows tell me there is a source of light somewhere ~ even when my eyes fail to see it.
