Sometimes day has no signs of beginning

But a bird is already singing

It is dark, yet a lark tries a different song


Sometimes  nights  just are a few hours too long

And the birds have all gone for the season

In those nights with no end I just think of you

For it gives sleepless nights a good reason

    Loved the way you captured and portrayed the differences in day and night , with change of ‘season’and reason.. Made me smile , as I can relate with it quiet ! 🙂

  24. @ Helena: yes, the best sentences pop up at night, with no pen or paper in sight 🙂

    @ adreamygal : thank you 🙂

  25. I always wonder how naked, heartfelt lines like “In those nights with no end I just think of you” have such an impact… I like it!
