Staying Awake.

My night prepares me for Hope,
Staying awake in silence,
With eyes wide open,
Has made me appreciate the dark.
Loneliness corresponds.
Staying awake prepares me.
Through the past I built my hope on blue skies and the sun.
In years, I realised the blue could turn grey,
And the sun could burn and set.
The dreams night bestowed
Were invisible by day.
So I am awake
When the world about me
Blissfully dreams on.
Alone – doing whatever it is I do –
Staying awake at night,
Sleeping through mornings instead.
Quiet night prepares me,
For the rest of life ahead.
5th November, 2007.
