Goodnight

How do you say goodnight to this night?
When the prairie glistens with moonlight tears
How do you close your weary eyes?
When a blink just spells nameless wounds

What would you tell the stars?
What would make them listen?
What would I give for an ounce of their heat?
Arms reach away, lifetimes apart….

Why here? Why there?
‘til that day unknown, cease to care
Setting…it’s slowly setting now
Slow down Mr. Moon, cast light into the sea

Goodnight tonight, let monsoon winds dry the tears
Goodnight tonight, let the eyes close halfway now
Goodnight tonight, lighthouses and northern lights
Goodnight, goodnight…tomorrow and beyond….
