A Beautiful Denouement

The last lingering hour before 

bed, stars become twinkle 

lights, a gentle wind dances 

through the darkened leaves, 

and you check the doors, 

put the house to sleep, 

one room and then the next,

until you reach me, one candle

left to extinguish, one last kiss,

and we fall into dreams until
