Befriended.

The night has been my friend for many years,
has wrapped me in her cloak of stars and black,
has witnessed both my silence and my tears,
comforting me until the dawn came back.

The night has been my friend for a long time,
and listened to my whispered confession,
she watched me investigate, or redefine -
patiently, with unwavering discretion.

The night has been my friend for many years,
she absorbed my desperate and lonely cries,
she mirrored me my darkness and my fears
but she would guard me until the sun would rise.
