Long Night

The sun disappears below the horizon
long night ahead before it rises.
Ghosts are getting ready to arrive.
to say hello to those still alive.

I try hard to stay awake,
scared of what they might take.
Dreams come of another time
with friends and family in their prime.

but their smiling faces are soon replaced
by visions from a different place.
where no ones there to hold your hand
and lead you safely through this foreign land.
