Silent Waiting - Poem by Barry Middleton

red and glowing in the night
my clock is slowly keeping time

tonight it seems the dark is endless
as I search for every rhyme

and I have so many questions
the hush of night yet reigns supreme

I know that is the way of silence
it takes nothing to extreme

perhaps it listens in the darkness
cursed to never answer dreams

or it knows the only answers
lie within or so it seems

we all must find the way we find
the reassurance is the story

and it is told by every man
of all the world and love and glory

in the darkness there's a plan
and it may be that something hears

and though it never makes reply
it can relieve us of our fears

until the body finally dies
then the silence speaks out true

only then will we find out
what is waiting in the blue
