Today's Beautiful Gem: `Through the Twilight' by Brett Brady.

"I asked her to stay with me through
twilight, secretly thinking I could
convince her to stay a day or a week
or a month longer. Maybe we could
have seen the seasons together.

"Stay with me through twilight.
Lead me into sunrise.
Let me see the sun set
Deep within your eyes.

"Lock me in the shelter of tomorrow.
Hide me in the hunger of your sorrow.
Shadows falling all around us
Follow softly and surround us,
Then, too soon, the moon comes down.

"We belong to twilight,
Far beyond the springtime.
Keep me in the sunshine
Deep within your mind.

"All the seasons call us.
Won't you touch this gentle love?
Wake me in the twilight's light
And take me through the nights."
