Eventide

Like a silent and kindhearted friend

The crescent moon did to her attend


He peeked through the panes silently

Ever mindful of her fond privacy


Though fast asleep in tender dreams

She stirred to greet his reflective beams


She smiled welcoming her confidante

As he was unfailingly her gallant


Her eyes grew bright, shining like stars

Recounting stories, affections, memoirs


Speaking of days, work, and silly vignettes

Relaying sorrows, trials and biting regrets


Lavishing long on friends, lovers, and dreams

Braiding her art of unpredicted scenes


Soliloquizing with fervent feeling

Unfolding like a rose unconcealing


Vouchsafing her secrets and cares

Knowing all is safe as a prayer


And he who shines in crescent phase

Listens to all in empathetic gaze


Then ascends tranquilly into the night

Conferring his kind kiss of soft light


And with affection she serenely reclines

And drifts to sleep without confines
