While the raven sleeps

Feasting , in a climate doused in affection
Relying in the promise of a new tomorrow

While the raven sleeps

The sun parades across the sky
And I , am not just a seat at your table,
We welcome seats at " ours "

While the raven sleeps

We dine on the appetizers sprinkled in hope
The scent of the roses , the fresh lawn in the breeze
The little things normally overlooked in our surroundings

While the raven sleeps

The butterflies sleeping on my insides Dance ,
At the mere anticipation of her presence

While the raven sleeps

The dose of reality bathed in the now
intertwined with the walls of his nest
Hiding the lurking shadows of chaos that come to life the moment he wakes

While the raven sleeps

The morning star grows heavy
The skies start to dim
The moon peeks over the horizon
Bringing with it the realness of a hardened heart

The raven sleeps no more ......
