That night when all went silent
And moonlight trinkled
As soft and sweet as a brook
As pure and pristine as a tear

Wrapped in a cloak of calmness
Glistening like millions of diamonds
Dancing in the hues of thy night
On a wintery eve you made me smile

You brought me solitude
You brought me strength
Strength to face tomorrow’s harsh sun
Solitude to survive the worst

And when it ended; my daily war
You were there to envelope me
You were there to stroke my hair
Wipe my tears and cleanse my despair

They found peace when the sun shone
They found peace when they could see
I found you and your love
O dear night what would I do without your dark embrace!
