The Night and The Dawn



The night was cold, the moon was high,
The wind was calm, stars lit the sky,
The trees gazing at the lovely moonlight,
She could not ask for a better night,
She opened the window, but sheers were drawn,
For her life seemed to have no dawn.

She always heard people say,
It's better to burn out than fade away,
She inhaled, she exhaled, but felt no breath,
Every second she felt a little closer to death,
She never smiled, they made her frown,
They felt she always let them down.

They thought she could never achieve,
Not once did they make her believe,
That she had got what it takes,
and Success is what failure makes,
She felt useless, She felt helpless,
She had tried so hard, but was still clueless.

They walked past her when day was bright,
She felt all lonely in the night,
She lay down on the bed alone,
When suddenly, there, rang a phone.
She said, "Hello?" He was a friend,
He had a helping hand to lend.

He had been watching her observant,
But to seek his help, she was reluctant,
He was the charming boy of all,
And mostly, he was liked by all,
He made her believe, that she could achieve,
She was inspired, she folded up her sleeve!

For she was ready to conquer the world,
It did not matter, how harsh was the world,
She knew there was always a room at the top,
She gave it all, She worked from her top,
He stood always by her side,
She now wanted him by her side.

And together, they made her succeed
She is a flower, they called her a weed,
She looked at him with the broadest smile,
And thanked him for staying all this while,
He turned around, he held her hand,
She felt ground slipping like the loosest sand.

He held her close, Her face was red,
His heart was pounding, She was too scared,
He kissed her lips, She shed a tear,
He said, "I Love You" in her ears,
The sun went down, The night is here,
He whispered again in her ear,

"The night is cold, the moon is high,
The wind is calm, stars lit the sky,
Look at the trees, white in moonlight,
Could you ask for a better night?"
She opened the window and no sheers were drawn,
For after this night, there was a new dawn.

Splendid! A beautiful soft start, a build-up in the middle-section and a grand end - this is what I imagined musically to complement your words. You can turn this to a fine song. Keep writing!!!
