Ever noticed the silence of the night

When there is a stillness around you

And the only sounds are that of your inner voices

Each trying to drown out the other

Clamouring for attention –

Sorrow hiding nearby

Like a truant child


Joy watching on gleefully

Glad at being given

The centre-stage finally;

Passion rising in the heat

Glorying in its new found freedom;

Cynicism waiting

With brows raised

For one’s feet to touch the ground again;

Hope standing by

To assure

That everything was going to be all right;


Bowing down to common sense

Ready to comfort one in times of loneliness;

Where there was cacophony

Now is a medley

Created and performed

By that smooth and experienced composer – Time.
