The Chill of Night


Night time fills the air
Cold wind beat against my window
I wrap up tighter in my blanket
I pretend I'm not alone

I cry a soft cry under my breath 
The pillow becomes my comfort
The silence has its own chill to its breath
Darkness seems to be winning

At last a glimmer of light shines through my window
It breaks the hold of night over my soul
A new beginning  another day to live
A day to find that human touch once again is mine

A very powerful poem; did you write that? Absolutely beautiful...especially since I found myself awake at 4:17 this morning...what's up with that?

Yes. I do some poetry when I feel I need to say something that might reach others.

Hey Sugar Pie, You should run...not walk and buy yourself a few journals and begin to write, write, and write some more. That my sweet friend is where your talent lies. Powerfully beautiful poetry. Betcha if you do this you'll begin to heal. Love you, Mollye Oh and what better time than while you are recouperating from your surgery! Yay. My friend Wanda, the famous Hallmark writer :-)
