She lingers on the brink of night

Hanging above the rim of the starlit sky

Fearing the oblivion of the sun’s dark light

One small step, one small leap of faith

Love hangs, suspended, longing

A mystery deeper than death

Brighter than all the starry gulf above

Trusting, giving up all she is

Falling, falling, to sun’s fiery light

That washes away the stars, and veils the moon

Who, in surrendering to love

Must lose all sense of self.
