The heat has overflowed from day to night;
memory of your eyes haunts me tonight.
The world no longer brings joy to my sight;
to my eye night is piled onto night.
Once I would have looked up at starry light,
your sigh in my ear; it is dark tonight.
The moon no longer beams with face of white;
our love did not endure from night to night.
Return, my love, and set my heart to right!
I am alone when day turns into night.
