At Night


Oftentimes we think there are no problems anymore, when we rest asleep, but all of a sudden things can make us feel upside down, inspite of the silence of the peaceful night...

At Night
Night falls at night peace
everyone is on an ear
in silence we pray, my love, do not fear
i feel most at my ease

night falls at night pleasure
mostly we rest and think of our treasure
we also know that this part of the night
an intruder can come and we are in a sudden fight

oftentimes we are deaf we do as sleepers
in our own area mostly as dreamers
what treasure, we do not posess
what dreams, mine have become less

night falls at night peace
everyone is asleep
in silence i pray, my love, please
an stranger in our house, whisper in my ear, don't weep
