I like the dead and dark of night
when people are asleep,
instead of walking tenderly
and stumbling on my feet.
Instead of talking needlessly
of worries foes and fears,
I hear the silence of the house
alone, my mind is all my own.
I do not have to care
and yet I love to care about
the people in my life.
I love to hear their problems and their woes.
It's just the night time calls to me
a time to be alone.
A time to reexamine
all the thoughts that are my own.
I love to think for just myself
An unrestricted time to grow
I love the silence of the night
with self felt affirmation.
