Winter’s Night


Winter’s Night

The night came earlier
During those cold winter days
A full moon in the sky
Seen through a metropolitan haze

The morning comes late
As the night lingers on
Before the day’s dawn
The winter’s night is long

A star-filled sky
After the full moon goes
Twinkles announce a million worlds afar
And here we are, but do they know?

And I wish the night would never end
Yes, I wish the night would never end
