A Night Song

Just as the year might come to end tonight
The total world may also come to die;
Across the heavens moon shall shed no light
On one last look of unbelieving eye.

The world has multitudes of wondrous things
We miss from snow illumed by moon and stars
That glimmer, sparkle as do diamond rings
To reddish burn of ruby planet Mars.

It seems we're never ready or have time,
The future comes and goes and full of quirks;
Instead of loving me commit to crime,
Within our hearts and souls the devil lurks.
 Before we ever know it, lifetime ends;
 Our many chances gone and dead our friends.
