By My Window

By my window …

Nighttime vigil by my window,
there are the stars,
and the moon shining,
nighttime clouds,
swirl about,
playing hide and see with the moon so bright,

The black velvet night,
seems to twinkle,
sprits fly through the skies,
somewhere a nightingale trills
and the night breezes,
beckon me outside.

Nighttime melodies play,
longing to stray in scented meadows,
somewhere in my memories,
dreams they come to me,
of days that used to be
and moonbeams show a silvery path.

By my window,
as the night breezes blow,
I see spirits swirling above,
as they go dancing along the Milky Way.
The moonbeams light up my room,
they make me smile as they twinkle,
every night I am glad –
for the show the nighttime sky gives me.

On rainy nights,
there is no darkness,
as the silvery rain comes falling down.
I see the dark clouds,
but I know that each raindrop,
sends me love from above.

I can dream,
dream of the days when together were we,
looking up above I see,
the moon reflecting your smile to me,
but soon the dark curtain of night,
starts to fade,
signaling dawn’s light,
with a sigh, I depart,
knowing that when night comes again,
by my window, I will be.

    I love this poem. But then staring out of windows (especially my favorite windows) is one of my sacred past times. Thank you for your poems. Jamie

    Beautiful! This is serene with a touch of melancholy. There’s so much we can see from our windows and the nighttime takes us up and beyond.
