Although day does its best to delight
In the darkness my mind can escape
With the Sun giving rest to the night
Like a dream while the stars stay awake
When its setting is done
Retains full mystery
And the night turns to fun
And whatever may be
Then the Sun knows what’s done was done right.
Of the love that was done for its sake.
