Put Out The Lights

Put out the lights, then, and let the nightfall reign; 
Wind down the clock, then, and mount the wooden hill; 
Pull down the shades, then, and blank the window pane; 
Set down the book, then, upon the window sill.

Curl in the sheets, then, and drift into the dark; 
Sink in the bed, then, and keel into the deep; 
Dream of our love, then, and hear the dawning lark; 
Rise from the depths, then, and shake the clinging sleep.

Take out the trash, then, into the daylight glare; 
Walk in the sun, then, and hunger for my kiss; 
Stand on the grass, then, and breathe the scented air; 
Think about me, then, and warmly reminisce.

Put out the lights, then, when twilight dims the day; 
Sit in the chair, then, and ponder far and wide; 
Think about me, then, who loves you far away; 
I will be with you, then, forever by your side.
