Thirteen Nights in June

Here it is
the darkness
I have waited
all through day
and now at last
it touches me
caresses and envelops me
it’s in the dark I stay

Eyelids tire
with nighttime
and arms and legs
play pained
a day has been
another one
a truly rich and filling one
now rest; my body drained

Slight is this
dread tomorrow
and the startling
fresh beginning
Continuously marching on
a motion always carries on
to embrace my next awakening
