"Midnight Guide"

The light dissolves into the fog of evening
and though our steps have slowed we move with patient ease
Our words are spent, our laughter sent home yawning
and every face displays a languid sense of peace

Our minds are prone to fits of worry
fearful angst and anxious hurry
time that once felt free and lasting left us suddenly
all the while we missed you

Softly softly, Gently gently, waiting

We inch away soothed by the sway and rumble
of humming streets that we discreetly occupy
the world unfolds, we're feeling bold but humble
as though this life could be expressed in one long sigh

Home is not our destination
you have sensed some fascination
darkness has obscured the sights my eyes so long to see
so you gladly guide me

Softly softly, Gently gently, waiting

A midnight guide, a silent ride beside you
who doesn't mind a moment spared in sanctity
this well trod land shown by your hand feels brand new
a lovely moment now retired to memory

Your warmth was somehow never ending
the world your garden ripe for tending
I in contrast small and scattered, racing helpessly
so with you in mind I'm

Softly softly, Gently gently, waiting
