Goodnight (a poem)

Goodnight
Written August 10th, 2011
I wish you didn’t have to go
But your eyes are heavy
And you’ve had a long day, I know
Goodnight to you, fallen angel
Know that as your eyes close
The sun sets on my world
And I will grow impatient for tomorrow to unfurl

There are stars in your eyes
And the smell of soft rain in your hair
When I look to the night sky
I see a reflection of your face so fair
There is a warm summer breeze in your kiss
And the promise of dawn in your touch
When I toss a penny you are my wish
There aren’t many things I cherish this much
Far away planets orbit in your mind
Your gravity pulled me from the start
The closer we get to impact, the more I find
How I love the mystic moonlight in your heart

I wish you didn’t have to go
But your eyes are heavy
And you’ve had a long day, I know
Goodnight to you, fallen angel
Know that as your eyes close
The sun sets on my world
And I will grow impatient for tomorrow to unfurl.

The stars admire how you eyes shine
And the rain can never fall as soft as your hair
The night sky wishes it were as fine
When it gazes upon your face with a longing stare
You taught the summer breeze how to kiss
And soft dawn hues will never be as lovely as your touch
Pennies hope for a chance to grant your wish
There has never been anyone that was envied this much
The universe orbits around you
Your irresistible gravity pulling it all in
And as the moon turns it wishes it knew
How to glow as bright as your heart within

I wish you didn’t have to go
But your eyes are heavy
And you’ve had a long day, I know
Goodnight to you, fallen angel
Sleep will bring me quickly to your dawn
But I’ll stay up too late
Resisting every impending yawn
Because the night reminds me so much of you

The universe hovers over you as you sleep
Quietly observing the beauty of your peace
Dream sweet things and sleep tight
Goodnight my angel

Goodnight
