Rain of the Night

On the roof the window pane
The rain it beats
Rain of the night
The darkness comes
The eagle the dove
Entrapped and drowned
Beneath the watery bane

Stars no more in sight
Torrential rain
Drowned its call
The voice we hear instead
The darkness
Loud and jarring
Declaring its might

Whatever it said
An empty vessel
Proud and baseless
Nothing but
Just rain of the night
Soon will be dead

But the morning star
Always there
Ever shining
Bright eternal
The eagle the dove
Fly fly free
The day is here
It is not far
