The sun sets so quietly,
it’s warmth slowly disappears.
Loud howling awakens the moon,
As it’s glow reveals all your fears.
Thoughts cloud over you,
Smothering happiness of the day.
Night revealing all the creatures,
Who upon you begin to prey.
The darkness begins to swallow,
All that which you thought home.
Loneliness soon takes over,
your heart will endlessly roam.
Nature, one of the greatest cures,
can replenish your weary soul.
Or just a relentless curse,
Reminders of life’s endless toll.
Yet I raise my eyes toward you,
And howl your endless song.
For out here in the wild,
I simply cannot do any wrong.
