Sounds In the Night

Lord there are some sounds
That go right to the heart,
Like the sound of a train whistle
Blowing through the dark.

When everything is quite,
And you hear a lonesome dove,
And in your heart you know
You are listening from above.

The sound of the coyote pack
Lets you know again
That death is close for something.
It will be their end.

Traffic flowing down the road
Makes you think of tomorrow;
And you know within your heart
It could be filled with sorrow!

Sounds of the crickets
On a really dark night
Somehow lets you know
Everything’s gonna be all right.

The occasional barking of a neighbor’s dog
Lets you know they are other people about.
Guess you could talk
If you wanted to give them a shout.

What I really like to do in the silence of the night
Is talk to you while everything is quite.
I can hear you answer me then
Not like in the day when things get in the way.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
