She found me in the dark,
I’d fallen deep within the sea.
She held me like an ark,
a vessel of tranquility.

She gathered up the night,
and tucked in all these
cares and dreams.
Sheltered my eyes from light
and spoke these words
as I fell asleep.

“Look to the stars
and let them remind you
of a light after life
that one day will find you.”
A kiss in starry light,
from the Angel of the Night.

“Look to the moon,
and let her guide you,
to a cherub of light,
that is living inside you.
A dream that comes to life,”
said the Angel of the Night.

Feather by feather
we are bound together,
by flame and wax
hopes held forever,
in flight up to the sun
such dreams must be undone.
By wing and wind
a mortal sail,
by flame and wax
the feathers failed,
so far above the trees,
until I fell into her sea.

She handed me a key,
a heartshaped locket
of memories.
Whence I held upon my breast,
starlight gave me rest.

She spoke to me in the night
when darkness gathered,
in a gown of stars.
A kiss upon my brow
to keep until the day I part.

“Look to the stars
and let them remind you
of a light in the night
that one day will find you.”
A glimpse in starry light
of the Angel of the Night.

“Look to the moon,
and let her guide you,
to the light after life,
that is living inside you.
A dream that comes to life,”
said the Angel of the Night.

Sweet Angel of Night,
bind me with you,
when daylight comes,
how I will miss you,
in the hour of the sun,
to the night my heart will run.
By wing and wind,
this mortal coil,
the feathers fell,
but the heart stayed loyal,
to the beauty of starlight
the Angel of the Night.
