Secretly I embrace sleep
for my lover will come
to me in a dream
on a cloud will he ride
commanding his steed.

Hungrily I long for night
for she will bring
my lover to me
wrapped in velvet
of blackest eve.

Blind me darkness
take away sight
I've no use of it.

Love is blind
and lovers too
we feel and needn't see.

Take me, Love, into the night
where no one comes between
where nothing separates
and none tear us apart
where love is enough to bless us
and darkness does not judge.
