Night (in response to Old Fool)

I was young
A long time ago
I thought the night belonged to me

Now I am old
And will be for a long time
I know the dark and silent hours belong to us

We are the ones
Who wake and stir and wonder alone
In those deep and distant hours when the moon cracks the sky

We see the night sky open
Show us our own minds wandering alone
In the consciousness of being and ending and being again until we sleep a bit longer

    This is deeply moving poetry and so beautifully written – as usual.

So what do you think?
