The Way by Night

byToward A Word©

I can't tell you now
not in the light of day

meet my by the silo tonight
after the moon rises from the crapapple tree
fast through the woods
with only fireflies to light our way
along the edge of the creek
barb wire in the dark
stop by the third oak
catch our breath
steal a kiss
eternal moment
then across the field
moonlit gleam in a rabbit's eyes
when we reach the rock wall
we're almost clear
crouch down, look back over the top
don't speak
don't breathe too loud
don't let go of my hand
look for the path
trampled pine needles
the big poplar is over the second hill
listen for the little stream
trickling over the big rock

there I'll find the words
that I can't tell myself
from my knees
I will give you my confession
your hand in mine
gives us that right

tomorrow is all that matters
