The sun sets in all its glamorous essence,
Soaking the horizon in the yellow gold of its presence,
Taking the day in its pockets full of glory,
Wrapped in memories, now just untold stories
Out of sight, an anxious night awaits
Coated with motives and evil intentions,
Drowning in anticipation of its planned tragedies,
For it feeds and eats and survives only on our hope,
Growing in destruction and chaos of the living,
Scaling our boundaries in an ominous cloud,
Searching for a weakness,
Gnawing for an entrance
So tonight as your eyes shut with sleep,
Beware of the monsters that roam like sin,
Pray to they, whose souls you keep,
The un-charred purity that lies within,
To keep you safe in their sacred light,
Till the cracks of dawn, when the threat retreats,
And even though you may not see me through the entire night,
Fighting gallantly besides your blessed self,
Just remember my dear,
That the night comes not as single soldiers,
But as a battalion of crushing forces,
And while you fight alone by your bedside,
Forget not the wars you cannot see
