The angry storm approaches in the night, Its curdling howl is heard for miles around. The trees all flinch in fear of nature's smite, Then cast their sobbing leaves upon the ground. No soul dare venture out to face the storm, For nature's wrath is not so lightly scorned. The lights go out as winds in anger swarm; The frightened city now lies unadorned. Yet here I lie in rest with you, my love, As candles lift the veil that darkness brings. Securely sleeping like a peaceful dove, Your arms around me are your regal wings. I gaze at you when calm outside returns, And kiss your face as one last candle burns.
