Dark Fantasy


Child Of The Night

Child of the night
Darkness in flight
Come to my empty arms,
I'll hold you tight
Shield you from light
And keep you safe from all harm.

Here you can rest
Safe on my breast
Until the day is done,
Till in the west
Sunlight oppressed
Signifies night has begun.

Then when you rise
Fire in your eyes
I thrill with pure delight,
Your hunger cries
And my heart sighs-
Come to me Child of the Night.
