All Things Ending

There it looms
A dawn come before the sun
That you have stayed up all night to see

Let me awake, let me away
You cry, the sky grows brighter

The stars begin to swell

The moon is shattered by the light
So softly 'round the edges
Her face of white and black and grey
Bleeds away its darkness
Is swallowed by the night
Is drowned by the night

Let me flee, let me fly
You cry
The heavens are an ink-blot reversed
A bright stain spread to all horizons

The sun will rise in its time
But the sky, the moon, the night
Are white

Let me away, and let me fly
