Tonight there is a gentle breeze.
Take away all my troubles if you please.
There is no gloom
Only the shining moon
I sit and contemplate my fate
Knowing that it is very, very late.
Still, I have to pen my thoughts
Lest they get lost.
When did my youth take a left turn?
There are days that I feel a yearning
For what was
But is now only a fleeting memory.
How is it that the many of my dreams
Are still waiting for fulfillment
Will there be time left to do
All the dreams or just a few?
Is the darkness simply a reminder
To rest and revive my energies …
For tomorrow another glorious day
On this knowledge I will thrive
Remembering that to have dreams
Is to know hope
And strive to accomplish as many as I can
Tonight there is a gentle breeze
Taking my troubles to a distant place
Still, I am showered with inspiration
By the light of God’s silvery moon
