Oh, silence you are beautiful.
You are like a muted ocean crashing upon cliff walls
A heavy blanket that warm the coldness in my soul
Motionless energy that hums with life.
I lay in silence but the thumping
of my sleepy heart;
Awaiting for a new dawn of deeds
to be done and made.
New dreams to be wrung,
Grateful I am for I breathe!
Though I have a heavy mind
I think, and I feel the people within arms reach.
Melancholy they may be
Raged at some point of the day
Brightened at some way
Life is lived I say.
I am thankful for the peace you give me
When a day is done
And a part of the world is asleep.
You are the kindness I seek
In a world wrought with noise.
You are the darkness I yearn
When brightness seems too bleak
My Friend, to whom I will always speak.
