Fading night

As I sat on my porch I gaze up in the sky I see the calmness way up high No breeze,and the sun is setting I think of you and the smell of the pines. I see the tall tree's so big in the night I hear the chirps of birds so low Night has come to all things outside the end of morning leads to a new day the shadows of winds so lightly they flow seeing the branches just take it slow squirrels scamper to hide in their beds bugs start to roam as night takes hold now I will sleep and dream of a land where we can hold each other so safe by the sand.
