Quiet Dark

Quiet Dark


You are the quiet dark
Of a winter night
The softness of newly fallen snow
That blankets the world
In silent stillness

You are the shadow
By my side
Footsteps matching mine
Altering the path 
When you chance to lead 
And when you choose to follow

You are the sky
Betwixt midnight and dawn
The lost hours
Against whose darkness 
My starlight shines

You are the calm
Of a peaceful sleep
The comfortable cocoon
Of a gentle embrace
And words whispered quietly
To my darkness
