it’s night again

be quiet…
it’s night again

you are alone again
your neighbours sleep
and those you once loved
are elsewhere

as this vast world
settles into silence
it’s night again
it’s time again
for solitary hearts
to be awake and alive

be alone
be quiet
and meet the quietness of the night
with all your hopes
with all your pain

be witness
as your soul rises
to meet the stillness of the stars
and your heart fills
with the sorrows of the world

while others
chase a dream in the day
and more in the night
be quiet, and watch
as life in you
meets all life

be quiet
and listen
let this communion
take place
