I have spent a hundred nights alone
No face to greet me when my dreams depart
No comfort from the warmness of your arm
I hear your key but it’s a false alarm
A tear runs down my face and then more start
I have spent a thousand nights alone
A river with no bridge nor stepping stone
This water which keeps lovers late apart
No comfort from the warmness of an arm
I see you are now dust, where are your bones?
Where eyes to show me when you are contrite
I have spent ten thousand nights alone
In the night you prayed for all who groan
You smiled when I once spoke of future life
What comfort could I bring to the Unknown?
I shall find a way to carry on
I will find the secrets and the light
I accept a million nights alone
When we were joined , who knew when we would part?
I am left with fragments of a heart
I have spent so many nights alone
Give me comfort ,take me in your arms
