The silence of the night
speaks to me unbridled.
My best friend, my confidante.
It whispers my joy
and it penetrates my being.
Peaceful contentment,
quiet contemplation.
My soul is replenished
in its presence.
It speaks to me the truths
of my life
and arouses in me
my dreams of the morrow.
It loves me unconditionally
and I in return
embrace its presence,
when in the moments of its dark
shines the brightest of my light.
