Night Fall (Poem by Ayanda Akinyemi)

I love the night when the day is dark; 
When the sparkling light over the sky 
Illuminates my mind like a moonlight tree
With a thought in the night,
How the day was spent.

I love the night during the hour
Of a solemn lullaby;
Singing aloud through the holly season.
At a point in time, the night will be short 
When in a bit, it elapses its time.

But, I fear the night 
Like the day of transfiguration;
When many are left undone 
During the day till the night is raveled.
I fear to sleep, bring me back the day
