Project Athena - Day 36 (Sunrise/Sunset)

When the Morning Comes

When the morning comes
I will hold her in my arms,
I will touch the rising sun
And drink the dawns sweet charms.

When the noontide comes
I will watch him steal the morn,
Watch him trying leisurely
To keep the night unborn.

Circles and velvet skies
Shadows following light,
Each day the world turns around
I feel my soul taking flight.

Circles and velvet skies
Shadows following light,
Watch this love pierce the dark
And bring the sun through the night.

When the evening comes
I will sigh and let him by
There’s no time for him to linger
No time to set aside.
He must hasten to catch the dawn
Like a runner in a race
When he comes into her light
He’ll touch and then embrace.

Circles and velvet skies
Shadows following light,
Each day the world turns around
I feel my soul taking flight.

Circles and velvet skies
Shadows following light,
Watch this love pierce the dark
And bring the sun through the night.
