When the world falls asleep,
Night spreads its black carpet
When people turn to the warmth of their homes
And birds to their cozy nests;
After one more gruelling day of life-
When there is nothing anymore bright
And despair tries to seep in the heart;
When I begin to start giving up:
A bright star rises then
Illuminates my heart and the soul;
Whispers in my ears few words of courage, joy and hope.
Reminds me of those pleasant sunlit skies
That forever follow these dark nights
My mind is instilled with resurrected faith
I am full of renewed vigour,
To try, to work and win.
