The Gothic Night

by Jessica Sousa Alves
(United Kindom)



This Night as Eternity
night falls upon the forest
the stars shine bright
revealing the haunted masks
of the dead souls taking flight

look beyond the windowsill
watch as they fly
aurora surrounding them
makes you want to cry

close your eyes
and go to sleep
I'll protect you
so don't weep

oh, beyond your smile
oh, sleep tonight
oh, the haunted mile
oh, the love filled tile

into the night sky they leave
bringing light unto the fern
they died because of love
and for love they will return

the world is brighter
now that you have appeared
now that I'm with you my love has seared
into the dark I will never ride
and into my heart you will never hide

don't worry my dear
nothing will take you away
you have nothing to fear
for with me you will stay

sleep forever if you wish
I'll stay with you
my heart is your hearts dish
to feed and true

oh, beyond your smile
oh, sleep tonight
oh, the haunted mile
oh, the love filled tile

don't worry my love is true
I will always wait for you
nothing makes me want to leave
and I hope nothing makes you too

beyond this world there is so much more
to make you look more beautiful
though it is hard to imagine
but your beauty cannot be fulfilled

entwining are the trees
reaching together for unity
they wish they could have what we do
you have made me fall in love with you

close your eyes
and go to sleep
I'll protect you
so don't weep

the world is brighter
now that you have appeared
now that I'm with you my love has seared
into the dark I will never ride
and into my heart you will never hide

as I look into your eyes
I can feel myself falling
into your heart
I want to stay crawling

the darkness unveils
your perfect face
behind the skin pale
is a heart that beats

the spirits disappear
as I kiss your wine red lips
happiness devours me
as time strips
slowing down
making the moment an eternity

oh, beyond your smile
oh, the reverie mile
oh, entwining lovers
oh, spirits discover

I just wish this night would never die
forever you and me
take me with you everywhere
even into death for I'm in love with thee
