Waiting For Silence

As the day falls away,

As the dark settles in,

As the sounds simmer down,

As the cold rises up,

As the stars flicker on,

As the calm wanders out,

I will stand and I’ll wait for the silence.

 

With the day dying out,

With the dark climbing up,

With the sounds moving on,

With the cold biting in,

With the stars staring down,

With the calm far away,

I will stand and I’ll wait for the silence.

 

If the day is used up,

If the dark has come out,

If the sounds fade away,

If the cold hunkers down,

If the stars will bed in,

If the calm clambers on

I will stand and I’ll wait for the silence.

 

So, the day has moved on

So, the dark battens down

So, the sounds huddle in

So, the cold has spread out

So, the stars dance away

So, the calm rises up,

I will stand and I’ll wait for the silence.

 

When the day has caved in,

When the dark is switched on,

When the sounds have panned out,

When the cold claws away,

When the stars have stepped up,

When the calm filters down,

I will stand and I’ll wait for the silence.

 

Now the day is worn down,

Now the dark streaks away,

Now the sounds jumble up,

Now the cold fastens on,

Now the stars stagger out,

Now the calm trickles in,

Here I stand as I wait for the silence.
