Silence Falls

Silence falls as misting rain,
unheard, the night begins its spell
and I the shadow keeper,
it is within the dark I dwell.

You may keep the garish sun,
the tans and all that go with it,
the cancer causing side effects.
It is beneath the stars I sit.

My view is of eternity,
while yours is hidden in the clouds.
I sit alone and rest in peace.
Your peace is that of daily crowds.

Sing loud the voices of the night
and raise a chorus to be heard.
I wear a cloak of sprinkled stars,
as I pen this solemn word.

I too feel protection in the night and know no fear there. Enjoyed.

wow Michael, this is fantastic!  

"It's true/the way I feel
was promised by your face
the sound of your voice
painted on my memories
even if you're not with me
I'm with you"

Michael,

    I too am a night person. Quiet and peaceful... gives me quiet time to think  and write.  I enjoyed

Michael:

"I wear a cloak of sprinkled stars,"

What a lovely thought, above..and the night holds its own sort of beauty, as does this poem.
