Cool Nights

The cool nights are like old friends
Slippin' in real quiet like,
Not wantin' to make a fuss
Not lookin' for any attention.
Just showin' up an' bein' there,
Like they was there all along
Chilly an' good for sleepin'.
Hot days will soon give way
The brisk days of fall
Will show soon enough
Wantin' everyone to notice.
Not like the nights
Cool nights, quilt nights
Nights you snuggle up
To the one you have loved
For ever so long.
Wrap your arms around them
Move real close to them
Feel the gentle heat
Burnin' low for more years
Than anyone realized.
Glad for the cool nights.
