Timeless Night

Timeless night, what chill breath does steal the life of sunsoaked dreams?
Return my faith in tomorrow, and give my eyes the clarity of reason.
Let not the shadows drag at my thoughts or tighten around my heart,
denying me the hope that braces my soul against the darkness.
Throw down the blanket that does smother my trembling soul,
cast off the frozen lights of heaven and their mockery of my own tears.
Stand aside that dawn may swallow me in its red embrace
and burn away the nightmare that will soon enough grip me once more.
