Poem: Tonight






I would have been scared to be alone,
Especially on a night like this one.
I would not have gone to the places
where my sleep has fled (tonight).
But that was a long time ago.
And don't you know, I am all right again.
I used to always say things have a way of falling
in place,
Right around the corner, there always is something happier.
And looking at the sweet weather, the lovely gentle breeze...
I have nothing to say to you tonight.
I screamed the words but they fell on deaf ears,
And I tried my best to tell you...
But tonight, I am glad you didn't listen.
Tonight, I am pretty happy to be by myself.
I am not scared, no...not even of the rain.
Because now I know, no matter what happens, 
there is always a way to begin again.
