Dusk has slowly cast its shadow
The Sun has vanished beyond the horizon
Quietly the stars emerge
Bathing the night sky
With silver beads.
A triumphant moon soars high in the sky
Its intention firmly lodged for the night.
Despite the reign of the night
I toss and turn in my bed
Flinging the pillow aside
I pace restlessly in the sultry night.
Where are you my love?
Your absence stings my heart
Even as my misty eyes
Bravely dodge the tears
Let me rest in your bosom
For nowhere else will my heart lie still
My love, come back
And cure me from this cruel insomnia.
