Hymn To Venus

In this night I wait
Just like other nights
Sleeplessly I have waited
To catch a glimpse of thee
The clock ticks by
Sky turns black to pale
Like frozen tears of a mourner
Stars twinkle as if they know
Yet I have waited eternities
To manifest thy beauty
To kneel before thee
And offer my prayers
I pray for deliverance
I pray for forgiveness
Following paths unknown
Through the frozen lake
The reflection of a moonless night
O morning star! Rise!
Rise to grant my last wish
I call upon thee, Venus
To let my perception go on
Thou art divine, incomprehensible
And yet so simple and yielding
I ask for a last glimpse
Thus making thee my last vision
Before daylight claims me
Into a dark embrace
