No Glory

At night I fly
While most are asleep.
I see some signs of life,
Some creatures like me
With no need for the sun.
I am the hunter in the darkness
Following faint sounds into faint shadows.
Unknown until the touch.
Not a touch of death,
Though this my prey soon knows.
Mine is a touch of life,
For through death there is life.
And eventually we all move on.
