The Night Was Calling (poem)

Updated on July 23, 2016

The night was calling silently he slept

With dreams and themes and Joys of yet to come

Believing that tomorrows were well kept

To scents of life’s misfortune he was numb


The night was falling further on he went

To places traces splendors with his wife

For them it seems that fantasies were meant

As hand in hand they sampled thrills of life


The night was sprawling stillness took him on

No gloom no doom could wrench him from this sleep

His needs beyond his memories are gone

The days and years and morning tears now reap


The night was calling things are swept aside

Was on a night like this his love had died

Music only

      Such beauty found and lost in the passing of night, where souls celebrate and finally find rest... So beautifully written

      What a gifted, amazing poet you are, Martin. This entire presentation is heart-rending and poignantly touching. My eyes are moist. Thank you for sharing such deep feelings. The form and style of the lines are incredible but the entire poem takes precedence over its parts and elements.

      BTW - the music is hauntingly beautiful and fitting.

      Beautiful poem. I wasn't expecting it to end like that. But, such is real life.
