The secret of twilight

by Beauty In The Breaking   Jul 10, 2007

The sun is setting on the world,
the day has come to an end
and night is coming fast,
I wrap myself in the cloak of night
and smile to myself.

No one knows my secret
that I've hidden from the world,
tonight is the night I release it
and let it fly through the air,
free and full of joy.

The stars come out one by one
and speckle the sky with light,
the sounds of the night set me soul free
and I spread my wings and fly,
oh the wonders twilight bring.

Embrace the darkness with an open heart
and find your freedom there,
you'll find forgiveness and love there
and the spirit of God all around you,
never fear the night.
