Night and Day

It's often said
Two things are as different
As night and day.
But how different are they,
Night and day?

Touching at the seams,
Filling the same spaces.
Night giving day rest,
Day lending itself to dark.

Both forever and fleeting,
Rousing the world. 
Their love is old and sad,
As they continue.

Continue to watch,
The ones they give the day to
Find one another -
Hold each other.

The very thing they can never quite do.
