The Starlit Night
As the world sleeps I lie awake
How can I sleep when my world breaks?
I stand alone in this starlit night
My dark life needs more than this mild light
Oh! Moon, why don’t to me you talk?
Why don’t you beside me walk?
Oh! Stars, why are you so high?
Why are you so shy?
Why don’t you come down to me?
Why can’t you my companion be?
This loneliness through my vein creeps
Without a single tear my eye weeps
Standing I wait for the day bright
To come and fill my life with light
The sun will surely come at it’s time right
But will I survive this painful night?
