Like No Moth

Don’t be scared
I’ve got your back
And I will be prepared
To protect you
I will never leave
I’ll make them sorry
That they ever breathed
Upon your glory. It’s okay

I’ll shelter you
And keep you covered
As my hands subdue
The way you hovered
As crepuscule loomed
And something lingered
In the gloaming air
That sounded like an evening prayer

Now like no moth
That’s ever lived
I’m drawn to darkness now
It’s all you give to me
And yet somehow
Your dusty memory
Like focused rays
Outshines the sunlit lights of days
