Before Sleep.

Those warm showers at night,
Which comfort us before sleep.

The kiss,
Which nurtures us in the deep.

The work load,
Which is soon to be complete.

Those moments where we look out the window,
To see the lamp post doing it's show.

The night becomes well lit,
The rays of light which seem to perfectly fit.

Those times where we are alone.
With everyone asleep in a place we call home.

Before the day ends.
The thoughts we keep to ourselves suspends.

For we know what's really in our heart.
May be the reason why we choose to part.
