Within A Arms Reach

 Within a arms reach
 Is the coming hour
 So I stretch my hand
 Towards the rising power
 To grab a hold
 Of it’s shining glory
 Gracing the sky
 In this midnight story
 Yes, the day awaits
 This I’ve been told
 By the stars in the night
 No longer boasting their glow
 For when the darkness falls
 The day light creeps
 Through the closed blinds 
 Within a arms reach Hug
