Where lively shadows move no more,
and stars hide behind the midnight veil,
so my love comes to me at night,
kissing me with silence. We are no
lovers of the daylight. I will wait for you.
I will wait to bathe you in my tears.
I will wait to clothe you with my heart.
I will wait to drown you in my love.
I will wait in silence.
O darkness, my love's delight!
If my beloved is hidden in your depths
then swallow me with the night! If hiding
from me gives you pleasure then take these
wretched eyes, for there is nothing more
to see. I will wait in darkness. I will
love you in the night.
