The last light

Evening comes so swiftly, with the last light
Fading like a dropping leaf, tinged and tired
Against a twilight sky as day expires
And the cold sun falls slowly from our sight.
We blinded by the stars, reveal the past
As something that is ours no more to give,
Lost images and memories that live
A sullen lie and of old dreams that mask,
The broken vows where time that is no more
Than just the gnawing of a mouse to strike
The chords of yesterday, a petty cheer
To what was lost and what life has in store
Yet these slow hours and nights are all alike
Would that ’twere dawn again and morning near.
