Night Light

The night came lonely without stars,
the moon, a darkened phase
and black, the evening sky
left me to wonder why
darkness by itself does nothing for the soul
unless a little light shines down
on the people in the world
I call, Lonesome Town.

This is a great one...
Let that ever loving light shine on me!
I have noticed the lack of a moon lately. I am kind of glad that that tremendous pull it has on us all has let up a bit. I don't mind a little alone time. Great poem. Thanks.
Poignant and so surreal with really being that at all. Your on to something and your poetry is grand and far reaching with many a little nuance.
There is a little night light in every soul. R Duke
We all have a little soul shine.
thank you all for your comments. you know the funny thing about poetry is the words are always there; it's just arranging them in the right order that can be a challenge.
