Thief

As the night comes
  a surprise is written across the sky
In longing color's
  spring on the horizon
If you didn't look 
  it would have been lost
Gone into the dark
  with dreams not realized
It comes in the hours
  of quiet and rest
It comes beckoning us
  to stop and look
Silently like a thief 
  time will take it soon
And those who missed it
  will never know its beauty
Or catch the breath 
  at the beauty revealed
In light and dark
  color's enhancing the world
