THE SILENT NIGHT
_________________________

 

The night is silent dark and deep
Keep me awake far from sleep
Lovely crescent hanging afar
Reigning among the blinking stars

I wade through my turbulent mind
Grope around like a blind
The strings of yesteryear s are broken
And pearls of memoirs are strewn around.

Silhouette of palm tree near window sill
Sways its shadow when in breeze
Rustling of leaves whisper in my ear
The depth of night says 'come my dear'.

A shooting star in the sky above
Ripples my mind and makes me wry
The humble night says I'm here to stay
Till the dawn pushes me away.
