Confidante

When longing does so fill the night
With wants (or needs) so undefined
These hidden dreams, please, bring to light
Remove the veils that make me blind

Wrestling, listening, spirit reaches
(When longing does so fill the night)
For the truth Eternity teaches
Seeks clarity of sound and sight

Vision centers on inner light
Ears aren’t needed to hear this sound
When longing does so fill the night
To reason’s grasp I’ll not be bound

Releasing all that’s held inside
Pen in hand I begin to write
To you my muse I do confide
When longing does so fill the night
