Saying Good Night

Form: Arabian Sonnet

The time has come to whisper a good-night
With soft kisses that hold us close and tight
Throughout the darkness until the dawn light
Until another day when we unite
And as we part you and me still remain
Beyond the distance and beyond the pain
The endless lonely days of sun and rain
Until we’re together as one again
How can we say the lonely nights are good
As if it is something that’s understood
By the beauty of love in adulthood
Even apart our hearts shall beat as one
From the morning light ‘til the day is done
For the love’s power is second to none
