The night engulfed the horizon;
As the sky and sea met once again.
The waves tumbled over the shore;
As Neptune closed his bedroom door.
As the islands disappeared, within the night;
Slowly they went; as they drifted out of sight.
Distant lights peered from the distance;
Like out of a dream or a trance.
As the warm air surrounded him;
As if it was to help him see.
As the wind rushed by his ears, as he walked;
As he became a faceless shadow, within the dark.
