Come, Nights´s Darkness

Poetry

Tule, öö pimedus,

võta mind sülle.

 

Minu päike ei tunne mind,

öö jäänd mulle.

 

Ainust tähte sääl pole,

minul on kole.

 

Varja mu üle.

 

Come, Nights´s Darkness

 

Come, night´s darkness,

gather me to your lap.

 

My sun doesn´t recongize me,

the night is left to me.

 

There´s not a single star,

I am in fear.

 

Cover me.
