Bring back the night

He stood in the night,

letting his soul fill with the sounds of the universe.

Star gazing and dream catching,

looking at the world in reverse.

Seeking direction,

not manipulated time.

The forest tickles his feet,

too long has it been since she massaged them.

Too long,

since her sweet perfume filled his thirsty heart.

In this night they have their moment,

just him, her, and the stars.

Memory of a mountain man

The northern stars keep him now.

Away from harm, away from pain.

Free to soar, where the wedge tail roams.

Over the mountain tops of  his valley home.

Looking over us from a distance, his soul now free.

In our hearts you will always be.
