“Night is a balm”

Night is a balm, the stillness soothing
  my heart, granting some brief respite.
Clamour of the sun-driven world
  in retreat, noise no longer confining

My mind. Words rise in the silence,
  feelings and thoughts now free,
  whirling and dancing joyously,
  meeting each other in delight.

Night is a balm, healing the link to
  my soul, granting it precious strength.
The pressures and needles now briefly
  at bay, i can breathe again.
