A Gift

The light of day grows weary, fades,

The blue of evening steals in, awake,

Yellow eye from house beyond, blinks,

You slow your breathing, listen

You can almost see it now, wait,

Settling in like a promise, watch,

Gradually it overwhelms you, peace,

Ever-sought for, never bought, a gift.
