Let's just sleep tonight

It has been a cold and windy day,
Golden warmth has become
A thing of the past,
A long buried memory.

The long dark night looms 
Frighteningly, on the horizon
Threatening to freeze
To engulf, the shiny dreams.

The dusk once impregnated,
With the last tendrils of light,
Has closed its doors
And shut down its heart.

Still the dawn calls to me,
From the other end of this chasm,
With the promise of a sun,
It lulls me into a dreamless sleep...
