Song for the Sleepless

Written by: Sarah Ramharrack

Whispers caress the silky night,
Silent prayers in midflight,

Clouds parted by an unseen hand,
Shining moonlight upon a darkened land,

What a sight to behold,
As the silver flower unfolds,

Adding essence to a shrouded tryst,
The lure of such beauty I dare not resist,

As tides and waves pay the toll,
A mesmerising murmur quickens my soul,

A restless aching, a need for more,
I close my eyes as my feet leave the floor,

Floating freely further away,
Here will I remain until the break of day.
