The night has become my friend and brings me solace

The moon and stars a welcome home to my palace

The trees whisper secrets in the night time breeze

The shadows formed force me down on my knees

The creatures hunting only pause the stillness

The tranquil darkness affords me no illness

The air I intake after midnight maintains me

The lack of sleep and the voices detains me

The solitude of the pre-morn enlightens me

The noise from the shadows formed frightens me

The daybreaks impending arrival wastes light

The truth can only be found in the night

The reflection I speak to alone gives me strength

The brain feels no strain and we talk at length

The words that I write and the hours I spend...

The night time has become my friend.
