When the silence blends with the darkness
And the wind stands still for the moon–
That’s when it’s late at night,
And the whole universe is in tune.
When the stars start to sparkle and glitter
Like a new coin reflecting light–
That’s when all troubles fade away,
In the peacefulness, late at night .
Many times I’ve stood alone in a courtyard
And stared up at heaven and space–
Wondering where it all began ,
While the blackness poured down on my face.
The mystery of all creation
Lies hidden in the sky–
As I look upon the glory,
Of a comet flying by.
Such a special time for dreaming
A dazzling vision in my sight–
That’s when my soul is safe and sound,
In the calmness, late at night.
