Each night, in silent splendor,
I see you shut your door And for a span of hours The world sees you no more; No more will you enrapture Each crowded city street, No eye will watch you passing, No heart will miss a beat. Only your door will witness, Only your lamp will see And together praise your beauty, Each night unfailingly. While I, in silent longing, Will gaze upon your door And fear that dread day dawning When I’ll see you no more.
