I Like The Quiet Places, The Silent Places


I like the quiet places, the silent places -
places inside my head.
Places where I can run and hide
in the moments when I feel afraid.

I like the places that welcome me
and let me run, or hide and play.
I like the quiet moments
where life seems far less grey.

I like it when I'm free to be
the one who chooses what to say -
the one who sits in silence
and hides herself away.

I like the quiet places where
in silence I may think at will,
and sometimes in these silences
I like to be quite still.

I like my quiet places and
the moments these may bring,
for in my quiet moments
I feel free to laugh, and play and sing.

And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
