Falling down on the street below.
Streaking drops of water,
Against the glow of misty, city lights.
There is an aura,
Of quietness here tonight.
Calm amidst the chaos,
Of trains and noisy nights.
I look out over the water,
A backdrop cloaked in grey.
Old churches line the shore,
Who knows what role they've played.
So much truth lies amongst the old, stone walls.
They tell a tale of enduring strength,
Cemented in the skyline.
Where there is humanity,
Chaos isn't far.
But tonight the city sleeps,
Amidst the beautiful, invisible stars.
