Only in darkness do the stars appear

When all light has gone and the dark is upon me,

When the cold is so hard that I scream out in pain.

When the emptiness inside is all that I see,

I think of your voice and hear nothing but the rain.

When I'm alone at night and tears break my silence,

When I cry out for help and there's no-one to hear.

Your voice climbs the barrier, creeps over the fence,

Comforts me, holds me, tells me there's nothing to fear.

My dreaming nightmare ends,

And I am left alone.

Only at night am I yours,

And see what I have never shown.
