A Night Like This

by LapisLazuli

A night like this, when the moon sheds its gentle light, is most beautiful.
For it reflects you, my love, a jewel that radiates strength during my insufferable times.

A night like this, when my love searches for yours, is most beautiful.
For when searching may seem futile, know that my heart's desire is infinite.

A night like this, when critters' serenade bemoan your absence, is most beautiful.
For your sound, blends perfectly with the wind, with the bustling grass and shaking leaves.

A night like this, when only your memories remain, is most beautiful.
For there is no greater joy, than remembering you, my love.

After reading this I felt calm and lighter. Poetry that evokes feelings is poetry done right, well done. I enjoy the repetition and especially love the word "critter" (reminds me of my father in the best way). 5/5 for a lovely piece.
