Sunlight & Darkness

In the cold morning light

When the sunrays smile bright

The remains are plain to see

What you and I will never be


In the fading mist of the day

Taking stock of our headway

Knowing who will leave my side

And which of our hearts will confide


The distance between light and dark

Faint as a decades faded watermark

Blink and the lightning burns an arc

A wafer-thin glow is eaten by the dark


After the darkness creeps away

The dawn arrives but will not stay

Don’t ask me to wake please let me drift

Just be here for tonight’s solitary shift
