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.
