after a sleepless night (poem)


i’d watched the hours going by

as moon was waning in the sky

i’d counted minutes and as they died

i’ve longed for you here at my side.


long yet have i to wait for dawn

for birds to greet the morn with song

how longer yet have i to lie

and wait for you as seconds fly


the seconds take eternity

it seems, till once again by me

you’ll be, that we may share love’s sweetest songs

as we together greet a million dawns.
