Inky black skies

nightingaleandrose

Inky black skies and cold stars
Return my heavenward gaze.
Who is awake at this hour
But for I and the nightingale?
She sings for her love,
Heartbroken and forlorn.
I, I sing in silence, in hope
For dreams deferred and lost
Only whispered in hushed tones
Now silenced by the dew
Covering the rose.
