The city is so beautiful at six o’clock in the morning!
Another day in darkness,
Yet another night.
A night of return,
You came and my soul was healed,
You chased out the sadness, the loneliness,
And the silence…
Even in our coupling,
To have a hum remain,
A sound bitter, plodding and sad,
Reflected in your pale face,
Covered in guilt,
Searching for another life
Yet another cry!
