Las estrellas relumbran en la noche

Timeless and pleasant to the eye
The essence of beauty will never die
Written in our soul, stuck in our mind
the everlasting longing for youth to find

Yet the fire of time engulfs all of our body
Leaving ashy traces and senescent faces
Deep below all perfection the flesh is bloody
And age replaces all attributes it embraces

Only a loving mind can keep and treasure
All harvested hours of pain and pleasure
Only the growing shadows of a suns decline
Are waking up the stars in the sky to shine
