EDGE OF THE DAY, by            
First Line: He shall wake in the dawn
Last Line: On the edge of the day.


He shall wake in the dawn
with the rain on the roof
like the beat of a heart
that is frightened and fleet.
He shall watch in the dark
till the edge of the day
finds the window and steals
to the wall at his feet.

He shall never forget
that I moved in his life.
He shall never forget
that my laughter was gay.
Though the moment was brief,
he shall never forget --
he shall think of me still
on the edge of the day.
