Night is Nigh

The night is nigh with parting day
Winds blow slowly over land
As I plod homeward, my weary way
And sunset dips behind the man,
Far from the maddening crowds and stressful life
The pleasing anxious night is nigh
Leaving arms of warmth this blissful day
A kindred spirit shall be my mate
Let me see him at daylight’s break
And while the sun sets on my lawn
And as the brook babbles near my ear
My love will erase all my fear,
Gentle hands stroke my hair,
Heart of strength press me close
The more he gave, the less I spoke,
A slumberous sound and loving dreams,
I welcome night and the silent breeze,
The night is nigh, and I am pleased.

    '...the more he gave, the less I spoke' is a marvelous phrase! Night can certainly bring a feeling of peace... it does for me. (12:07am!) '...my love will erase all my fear,' you have someone to share it with. Nice! A lovely piece, Kathleen! (PS Welcome to the Soup!!)
