The Darkness Comes, Silence Settles

By Gaetana D’Amico

The darkness comes, silence settles
The sun dips down, the moon soars high
The stars glow brightly in the dimming night
They shine in perfect harmony and smile

Mechanic hearts squeal to a stop
The darkness comes, silence settles
Doors fly on hinges, arms reach out in sheer delight
Leave the day behind. Welcome to a warm and inviting home

The final delectable mouthful, the last thirst quenching sip
Faucets let out a cleansing farewell drip
The darkness comes, silence settles
Blankets and pillows jump with glee as you leap into bed

The last chandelier flickers off wishing sweet dreams 
Eyes close in bliss to the arriving snores
Drift off to well earned sleep, the day ends again
The darkness comes, silence settles
