I welcome the silence as it creates my mood
Novel experience: absent interlude.
Reflection of my past; discoveries made
Book of memories so occasions never fade.
I welcome the silence to rid the air
To chase away demons of despair.
Gone are interruptions to my thought
Left with nothing but what I sought.
I welcome the silence as it clears my mind
Wistful I become of what remains behind.
Shadow of bitterness attempts to surface
But of such reminders I will not miss.
I welcome the silence to extend its stay
For unknown if it visits another day.
Appreciate the calm it brings for me
Fatigue speaks now, sleep peacefully.
