The thoughts of the night

man sleeping rough

I will go to bed tonight grateful for the comfort that it will bring

I will think of all those who will be sleeping rough

No home, no bed, out in the cold and damp nights

I will think of the people going to bed with a heavy heart from sadness and confusion

With tears in their eyes, they long for sleep

I will think of people with troubled times who will lie

pondering and worried hoping that a result be reached

I will think about the lonely with family far away longing for their safe return

Trouble can come to all of us where ever or what ever we do

I will hope we have the strength and courage to find answers

Our faith gives us time to reflect and the grace to overcome our adversities in the stillness of the night
