The full moon shines
And the cricket rhymes
The strong wind blows
As the darkness grows
The night is still
And the air is chill
The dog howls at a distance
And is visible from my stance
Loneliness fills inside
And breaks my pride
My heart sinks
And the world shrinks
The tears blind me
For an hour wee
Then, the silence breaks
And the world wakes
The sun peeks through
The clouds go through
The dawn ends the sorrow
And the sun rises with another tomorrow.
