Night time is a break away
a place of escape for all our thoughts,
decisions, worries, words.
Occasionally that haven is breached
An illness, a death, a worry too deep,
a friend's call, an airport check in time!
We visit an unknown world,
a place where others live,
the shift workers, and
others from a life unknown to us.
I like these visits to be occasional,
Night time is a break away,
sleep in the dark times,
a gratefully received gift.
