Night Swing

Right Before Our Eyes

How can it happen ?

So smooth and quiet

Almost undetected if not watching the sky closely

We see the bright sun slowly disappear in a distance

Then the world we see

Magically changes form

From a well lit room to one of darkness and mystery

The animals and birds have gone in hiding

the temperature drops as the air becomes nippy

What once was is now hidden behind a screen of black

It reminds me of when I was very young

Playing outside during the day

Thinking this day will last forever

Then as the swing set is left empty

Once noises of laughter could be heard

Now only the air filled with a dead silence

Like a camera that loses focus

Everything we once seen so clear is now lost

Giving us time to think

A time to dream

For a beautiful and a more wonderful tomorrow
