Long And Endless Night (poem)

Updated on January 27, 2015

I didn’t know the meaning of delight

Or hear the gentle words my lover shed

Until I kissed the long and endless night


From day we met our future seemed so bright

I gazed her way and this one truth would spread

I didn’t know the meaning of delight


Our evenings passed in dreams by candlelight

As passions from our heart soon filled our head

Until I kissed the long and endless night


And everyday adventure would invite

I’d laugh if someone walked to me and said

I didn’t know the meaning of delight


The moon was full and we were holding tight

Something was wrong her Joy was marred by dread

Until I kissed the long and endless night


And with the dawn the sun revealed my plight

I woke to find the life I loved had fled

I didn’t know the meaning of delight

Until I kissed the long and endless night
