A New Day

Fingers of dawn bring dewdrops falling,
Tears for a brand new day;
A rose coloured sky brings the lark calling
A song she sings to bright May.
The lilac is bending in her royal color,
Lost in the purple of night;
Star shine is softer and duller,
A new day brings life's delight.

Open the window and bend above me
Dearest red rose, my sweet song;
Shed your thorns if you love me
For nights without you are so long.
The day is ours, and daylight is breaking
Sweet drowsy eyes of grey;
You won't question an early waking
When the wings of night fly away.

    Aren't sunrises/sunsets the best? Ever driven during one? Especially a sunrise? They can really hit home. Just like this piece did...

    There's so many days we have in a life time. And too many words about lost love that rhyme. Hearts unrequainted will stir in the night. If you ask me, it just isn't right.
