The Night Glorious Light

Shadows fall.
The day is old.
The night is peaceful. Quiet.
In this time I can't deny it.

My thoughts are clear.
My spirit cheers.
As I wonder why these fears?

All that's there is joyous splendor.
Knowing of your love so tender.
Never denying.
No need for crying.
Knowing that the worlds not dying.

The night is cold.
In your love I feel so warm.
Telling you I feel no harm.
As I sit here in the night.
In your precious charm I delight.
It never ends your sacred light.

It lifts my spirit to keep the fight ever onward through this night.
I'll feel no remorse or spite.
Please stay with me.
Help me choose the right.
Lead me to your glorious light.

You do something special with rhyme in this poem, because the words that rhyme are not only linked by common sound but also by cumulative meaning. I'm thinking of the last with NIGHT - RIGHT - LIGHT. The progression of meaning positive: In the night you share with your loved one, you will be guided onto the right path with leads to their shining light. That's beautiful. And this is already announced in your great title THE NIGHT GLORIOUS NIGHT - That's unabashed eloquence. The fears you mention, the cold, the negative emotions like remorse and spite - all of these evils are dispelled by the enveloping goodness of the night, your loved one and the their double source of LIGHT. This a bright new poem for 2015!
Excellent! ! ! Words that soar, Stay in the heart, Forevermore.
