The Last Words of the Night

The lights became dimmed

‘‘Twas time for sleep

All said goodnight

The lights went out

Then the phone sounded

Alan answered it

It was his wife

Asking if all was well

Of course it was

 the conversation continued

Between him and his wife

All was well

And then he said those words

Those words I say no more

He told his wife he loved her

As I did mine

And still do

Although she is now a star

Shining her love

Down on me
