Long Night

Sun disappears
below the horizon.
Long night ahead
before it rises.
Ghosts are getting
ready to arrive.
To say hello
to those alive.
Trying hard to
stay awake.
Scared of what
they might take.
Dreams come
of another time
with friends and family
in their prime.
Smiling faces are soon
replaced.
By visions from
a different place.
No ones there
to hold your hand
and lead you through
this foreign land.
