Oh, Sweet Silence! OctPoWriMo 2019, Day 11

Oh, sweet silence that surrounds me,

I have searched high and low for you.

As the mother of five boisterous kids,

Loud noise was my nightly bugaboo.

But now they have all left the nest,

And I can finally hear myself think.

So, I turn off the television and phone,

And of your sweetness, I daily drink.

Written for the OctPoWriMo 2019 Challenge of 31 poems in 31 days. Day Eleven prompt is Silence. Fandango prompt is Bugaboo. Daily Addictions prompt is Night.
