I Sit At Night

I Sit At Night

I sit at night in silence

And wonder if I think too much

Do I read too deeply?

Do I look too hard?


I sit at night with the sound of the clock

And wonder why we laugh

What does laughter have to do with joy?

Did cavemen laugh so long ago?


I sit at night with the beating of my heartAnd wonder why we cry

What do tears have to do with heartbreak?

Can tears ease an aching soul?


I sit at night in silence

And wonder why I bother

Does it really matter?

Do I even care?
