Scarf on the face of the day,
only night can save it from pain
I want to turn my head aside
to avoid its eyes, wounded skin.
Hours, long distant hours,
playing their well known game
I know its rules, but I’m a rebel
I’ll wait for them to make first move.
And, when they do, I will wait
’cause waiting is the sense of life
until the last second I’ll pray
’cause praying is only salvation.
How beautiful the face you have,
oh, night, you who healed the day,
who cleaned the last drop of blood
and made all the pain disappear.
I was calling for you in my prayers
and you came, dressed in white
just like the day should be, poor day,
I can still hear its weeping, its sorrow.
Shiney perls on the neck of the moon
lighten the veil of the night
til the new day bears,
with new face, new life.
