I lay alone beneath my window
Watching raindrops hit the willow.
So calm and silent is the night;
No sign of day nor break of light,
No sound nor song can take to flight.
Among the hush that looms outside
I find my heart is hard to hide.
Below the night's thick blanket cover
I dwell on thoughts of my lost lover.
Staring from my lonely window
Drowned in silence, drowned in sorrow
I long only for tomorrow
So that the marks of lovers past
Escape my mind and rest at last.
