Silent Witness


Silent Witness

In the darkness

In the oaks and elms

In the shadows

In the tangled dark

Amongst the branches

Relentlessly searching

Through falling shades of night

In the intimate darkness

A silent witness

In this timeless prison

He looks for the light

I have left him

Just for him

Day upon day

Down endless pathways

In his dreams

With me
