Alone in the night:

Alone in the night:

Here I sit all alone.

Not a sound to be heard.

No movement at all.

Inside she sleeps,

Unaware I am not at her side.

Silence surrounds me.

Not even the wind whispers a word.

I’m all alone while everyone sleeps.

Enveloped by the night, the quiet;

And by those who sleep.

Outside the crickets are calling their mates,

While cars speed past,

Going places unknown.

Is there a lover, a friend, a mother or father,

At the end of the road?

That is something I’ll never know.

For I sit here, surrounded by the silence.

Protected by the night,

From all that I fear on the outside world.
