DAY TO NIGHT


DAY TO NIGHT

"THRESHOLD"


S.JENSEN (C)2020


STRIPPED THE LEAVES

BARE

WHIRLING

CRUSHING

BLENDING

DRIED AND MIXED

INTO THE TEA

THEY GO

STRONG

_

AND

THE SKY FADES

INTO DARKNESS

SLOWLY

_

YELLOWS

ORANGES

AND GREENS

FLOW THIS WAY

AND THAT

_

TING AND TONG

BLIP AND BLAM

TWINNINGS OF STRINGS

OF FLUTES

ALL RINGING

IN THE AIR

_

A TASTE OF YESTERYEAR

MEDIEVAL

YET THE RINGING

IN MY EAR IS

FADING AWAY

THE POUNDING EDGES

STING YET

_

ITS ALLOWED

SO THE NOISE

OF MUSIC

FLOWS GRACEFULLY

WITHIN THE

IN BETWEEN

NOTES

SILENCE BLARES

CROSSING LEGS

JUST SITTING HERE

_

LONELINESS HAS

BECOME A SOLACE

SPARKS

BEGIN TO FADE

IN AND OUT

NOW

YEARS HAVE PASSED

US BY

AND LIKE

GRAINS OF SAND

IT TICKS AWAY

GREYS FALL

FROM BLUES AND PINKS

DOES THE WIND

BLOW

NO MORE

REFLECTIONS

NO MORE

MEMORIES

ALL SO BACKWARDS

LOST AND GONE

WOUNDS SLOWLY

HEAL

AND SCARS

ARE MILDER IN COLOURS

_

AS THE BLUES

GO DEEPER

IN SHADES

AS SECONDS FLOW

THE WIND

RUSTLE THOSE

FALL LEAVES

BACK AND FORTH

ALL THE RAVENS

ARE FAR FAR AWAY

AGAIN

_

THE TIN WHISTLES NOTES

IN AND OUT

_

OF MY EARS

AS THE PIANO TUNES

NOW SOAR

WITH THE DRUMS

WAVE AFTER WAVE

_

I IGNORE

THE HEADACHE

AND CLOSER

AND CLOSER

_

DAY CHANGES

TO NIGHT

WHISPERS FALL

AWAY

AS WELL THEY ALL

JUST CANT

GET THROUGH

_

CALLING OUT

IN MY MINDS EYE

TO THE GODDESS

SHE KNOWS

WHO I AM

AND WHAT IT MEANS

I DONT HAVE

TO SAY A WORD NOW

ONLY SHE KNOWS

WHAT I KNOW

NO MORE SIDES

TO DRAW

ASKED FOR

COURAGE AND STRENGTH

AS THE BLUES

AND GREYS

BECOME

MIDNIGHT INDIGO

NO LONGER

AM I FLOATING

I AM VERY GROUNDED

TOO GROUNDED

ONCE AGAIN

CLOSING MY EYES

I CALL TO HER

ONE MORE TIME

PLEASE SEND ME

A GOOD DREAM

WILL YOU LET ME

TRAVEL AGAIN

THERE AMONG

THE VEILS

AS NIGHT FALLS

AND CLOUDS

ARE THICK AND STILL

WHERE OH WHERE

IS THE LIGHT

THAT GUIDES

TWINKLE FOR ME

SET IT THERE

DEAR SISTER MOON

AM I ON THE

RIGHT PATH

THE WAVING FIELDS

STRINGS

OH SHE WOVE

MY LIFE

AS SO...

_

AS SO...

OH DRIFTING

OUT THE

TURNING WHEEL

I GO PLAY

IN THE HALLS

TONIGHT FOR

A LITTLE WHILE

TILL I DECIDE

IF I WILL WANT

TO COME BACK

OR NOT

BRIGHT CANDLE

THAT YOU ARE

SHINE BRIGHTLY

IN THAT WINDOW

SO I CAN FIND

YOU

WHILE I AM

HERE IN THE VOID

SWIMMING AROUND

TO AND FRO

I FOLLOW

THE LIGHT

WITH MY CORD

IN TOW

BACK DOWN

I WILL FLOW

INTO THE PLACE

WHERE

YOU NOW REST

IN MY HEART

FOREVER...

_

YOU AREN'T MINE

AND I KNOW

THAT

BUT TO ME

YOU WILL ALWAYS

BE THERE

IN THAT SPOT

WHERE I WILL

ALWAYS

WISH ON THE

STARS GAZE

TO BE RIGHT BESIDE

YOU...

IN THE ETHER

...

_

OUR THRESHOLDS

BETWEEN

THE WIND

OF A KISS

FLOATING

IN THE AIR

TOGETHER

TOUCHES YOUR

CHEEK

AND I

WILL FOREVER MORE

_

DREAM

AND DREAM

AND DREAM

_

MY GODDESS

CARRY ME

IN THE ARMS

OF YOUR GRACE

INTO THE DANCE

ONE DAY

I WILL GO

AND NOT COME BACK

THAT IS NOT

THIS DAY

_

I WILL WAIT

FOR IT

AND TREASURE

THE MOMENT

I SEE YOUR

FACE ONCE MORE

_

I AM YOUR

DAUGHTER

AND LOST NO MORE

AM I

_

OH MY LIGHT

CARRY ME

IN YOUR POCKETS

SO I CAN

FEEL FREE

_

ON THE EDGES OF

THE TRUE

RAINBOW

FLICKERING

FLARES

IN THE NIGHT SKY

ALL FALL

ONE DAY

WHEN I AM GONE

_

NOT THIS DAY

NOT THIS DAY

AS LONG

AS MY HEART

HAS YOU

IN YOURS

I WILL REMAIN

HERE

ON THIS PLANE

OF EXISTENCE

_

ONCE IT

LEAVES

I WILL

NO LONGER

BE

_

BUT IN THE

ARMS OF

MY MOTHER

ONCE AGAIN

_

SO MANY CENTURIES

HAVE PASSED

AND WHISPERS

IN THE HALLS

_

CUS NO ONE

IS THERE

WE ARE ALL GONE

INTO THE VOID

COME FIND US

THEY BEACON

OUT

_

AND I SAY

NOT YET

NOT YET

_

...

_

OH LIGHT

SHINE

ONE MORE TIME

FOR ME

LET ME

SEE YOU FROM THE

SHADOWS

OF WHERE

I WATCH YOU

_

FOR ALL

ETERNITY

I WILL

BE...
