Dark Nights

Dark Nights…

Dreaming the dark nights away,
with wine and candlelight,
with memories that never end,
with songs of yesteryear
and a heart full of love.

Thinking of the days we shared,
when the darkness didn’t overwhelm,
when side by side,
the hours just flew by
and it always seemed,
that the road through winter,
was bearable with my hand in yours.

Dreaming the dark nights away,
with photographs,
special thoughts that come to mind,
remembering the good times,
leaving the bad behind,
knowing that it is a long path,
from each dusk to dawn.

With music, I play.
the songs that roll back the years,
that dry all the tears,
bringing nostalgic smiles,
of a time when all the notes did rhyme,
all the colors were bright
and love filled the room.

Dreaming the dark nights away,
wishing that the sparkling memories,
could stay with me a while,
so I could close my eyes
and see it all just like it was yesterday once more.
