In the Silent Night


Faint whispers in the dark

Slipping away ever so quietly

Under the twinkle of stars

Moving ever so silently


Night is this blackened veil

Embracing the slumbering world

Oblivious, nothing to reveal

Yet, to the quivering light I hold

Closer to my heart forever more

A gentle prayer I weave

Words into the silent night

Drifting when I turn to leave


So, perhaps one day

Wandering the edge of time

You shall find

Remnants of that shivering light

Those everlasting words left behind

My prayer to you


In the silent night
