Sleepless night...


The sound of an owl deep in the night
Breaks into my dreams and open my eyes
How I wish a pair of wings to break too in your domains
My beautifully sinister creature of the night

You announce to me “the witch hour” is close to be
And there is no moon or star tonight
Nothing but the candles wick and trembling light
To warm up these September cold night

The shadow of a cat
Playing in the dark
The ghost of a child

Laughing in the park
The howl of a pack
Carried by the wind
And the first warm love inside my heart

If you knew where to look it isn’t that hard to find
Now blow up the flames and sleep tight
