Guardians of the Night




The soft velvet blackness
Of the clear nighttime sky
Is broken only by the twinkling
Of the stars above so high.

They shine brightly overhead
And pulse with purest light
A heartbeat of the heavens
Ever patiently guarding the night.

We are watched from the heavens
As the last day's trials grow old
We can rest safely until tomorrow
When a new day will unfold.



 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~

We can rest safely until tomorrow
When a new day will unfold.

those are the perfect words to end a day on, it is midnight here and with the lullaby I am bound to sleep soundly and have sweet dreams goodnight and thank you, that was beautiful.

TerryW~
You've touched a chord of my heart
and played a lullabye of delight.

I love it when you put the stars on display and keep them twinkling until the sun kisses them good morning.

I like this a whole bunch-a-lot !
Love ya'

Terry, This was so simple and short, yet it said it all.  Whenever I have a bad day I always try to feel that tomarrow is a new day.
