I know that darkness is a friend of mine
We've held each other's hand in times of stress.
She sees when I've dropped my fervent quest
For light, to pick it up at some future hour.
It's in her embrace I find that extra power.
Although this world may be a total mess,
The truth is everything will turn out fine.
Our relationship has stood the test of time.

We walk the streets together, hand in hand
And guide ourselves from night to night.
Her warm coat blocks the eyes of foes around.
I trust her to protect me from the evil town;
The dying world; I tell you, man to man,
Her darkness is the only path to light.

Inspired by Robert Frost's "Acquainted with the Night."
Thanks Bob!
