In the Still of the Night

by Thomas K. Hunt

There's a mirror on my river with reflections of light
There's a calm in the evening that holds me tonight
Thoughts all around me seem to dance out of sight
Like silhouettes in the shadows in the still of the night
When I was younger I smelled the air
Footloose and fancy without any cares
Friends all around me
What a friendship we shared
Friends forever are the echos I hear
Echos of laughter, dreams and fears
Some have remained, some vanished with the years
The weak ones just faded while the strong held tight
As I sit by my river in the still of the night
There's a breeze kicking up now
It steals the calm
The reflections on my river are now all but gone
My thoughts are still dancing with the rhythm of the wind
They lead me away to the places I've been
They swirl me and twirl me and it just feels so right
As I sit by my river in the still of the night

I like this alot, the way it is written is like a wind of words, thoughts, emotions...sometimes a short line or breef gust of wind, others a gale. I also like the repetition...
