Last Star

Colours fade forever with the light,
The end of night. The worst
Is yet to come. You didn't hear.
I must have said it in a dream:
Don't wake, don't leave me yet.
All the men and women ever born
Were in my bed. Their dreams
Were not enough to fill my head.
But what is love, and what am I to say?
And who am I to remember.
Oh moon. Thou givest but thyself.
Oh! Take me with the night, west.
Fix the stars and set me there
To shine with characters of myth.
Beyond the Earth. Beyond the broken
Silence. Day was never night.
And as the last star fades
I wish the sun could rise
Illuminating Earth, the sky still dark,
The stars still shining bright.
