Silent nights we meet again
You come to me just like a friend
No matter how far I move away
You whisper in my ear with much to say

No trains to keep me company
No late night after hours cacophony
Just you and me after the daylight hours
When construction crews unplug their power

The night is silent with quiet sighs
Even the cats whisper good night
Of all the nights to lie awake
Vespers before dawn I cannot shake

The best laid plans of Mice and Men
“Hello darkness my old friend”
High school books and music sing
Midnight at the Oasis take me back again
