The rooster's crow warns me that dawn has come My sleepy eyes resist my need to rise I blindly reach for her but she is gone Then hear a sound that much to my surprise Reveals she hasn't left but still is near The sound then ever closer she appears! One last embrace and kiss before she leaves Declare undying love to last the years Such declaration mitigates our fears As varied shades of love each one perceives
*** Poetry form: Aubade - An aubade is a morning love song (as opposed to a serenade, which is in the evening), or a song or poem about lovers separating at dawn. It has also been defined as "a song or instrumental composition concerning, accompanying, or evoking daybreak".—Wikipedia/Aubade
