Night is not just night-

Night is not just night-

Night is not just night,
She says,
It’s the end of wear from
Another day,
Its the want of every tired limb,
To graze the bed
And be engulfed within,

Night is not just night,
she says,
It marks the start of day
for a few,

When the birds arrive,
And the sun depart-
To make a living,
They depart into night.

Night is not just night,
She says,
It’s the time when memories,
Sneak a peak-
Appearing as droplets down
Our cheeks,
With the knowledge, that darkness
Would shield their view.

Night is not just night,
She says,
It’s the time some pray,
The time some waste,
The time some rest,
Or the mind comes awake,
But night is not “just” Night.

A time will come-

A time will come-


A time will come
When this feeling will pass.
Dawn will give way to day,
And the thought won’t cross your mind 
It’s an inevitability,
That ship will sail eventually
Leaving no trail behind,
And you’d wonder,
When your head grazes with the pillow at night,
What was I thinking?

A time will come-
But I’m afraid,
It may not be today, or tomorrow
Or even the day after. 
So for now,
All you’ve got to do is-
Breathe, live (even when you don’t feel like it).
Grieve in your own way
For no matter how long the night is
Dawn always gives way to day…
