By Candlelight


In somnolent whispers the daylight dies
As the moon paints her halo across the skies
Days end, nights dawn are synchronized
As two hearts beating in unison…..
I gaze at a new spheroid created
Darkness with hope syncopated
I love this gloom that once I hated
Before the candlelight gently shone…..
In eyes with golden flecks of love
Dimming the shade of infinity above
Soft mirrored glow, but it is enough
As it pierces the shroud of night
Where our secret points of view
Are melded in an amber hue
A circle of light around me and you
For I love you best by candle-light
