I sat and watched the sun set today,
and now I sit with ears and eyes
wide open in The Night.
The sun set on you too,
somewhere and sometime ago.
You sit there in the darkness ... still.
We do not morn the setting of the sun.
Nor do we have fear the next day
will never come. Patience child.
We both know The Night will pass.
We stand at the ready with eyes east,
searching for the light.
We look for the signs of a new dawn to break,
and the dawn will come.
The dawn must come, and
after this long night we will be ready.
