I'm very glad you both liked of it, so, here's something more sensitive and pure, a tale which I wrote nearly two years ago, but just some minutes ago, I checked it and re-created some verses, and now I'm completely happy with it.
The Night of Silence and Rain
'Suddenly, a quiet voice reached my ears, it was like a whisper in the howling wind.
And I froze to that place, I couldn’t act or say anything, there I just stood and listened. Back then it was hard to tell, what the voice meant or tried to say,
But now it is clear to me, it was a sign, someone actually knew this night would come. And these were the words, the whispers within the wind:
’If it will be the night of misery and death
Then darkness shall descend upon this unsuspecting and silent earth
But if it will be the night of silence and rain
Then the moon shall shine brightly, and winds shall blow once again’
’But deep inside my heart I know something
There will always be silence and rain
Throughout the day and the night
Even during times of the sun and gleaming daylight’
It is so silent, and so cold night
I am watching how the wind is waving all branches of trees
While my heart is slowly breaking, I think of her, oh lady of the moon
And the rain is falling down so quietly, and the sky is painted in dark blue
But I wonder what happens
If darkness takes grasp of my innocent soul
I know I will probably lose it all
This life...my love and everything I’ve ever had
And if I fall into the darkest of all shadows
I don’t know, will I ever see my home again
I would lose all of my beliefs and hopes
Even everything that is left of my faith to this world
And I know… I would never see her again
’There I just sat alone in the rain,
but somehow I knew that someone would hear me
and I was...right,’
Spoken by mother-earth:
’I heard your cries, o’ mortal one, but why are you lying on the cold and gloomy ground, don’t lose yourself, stand up and look up to the sky, and you will know
that none won’t harm you anymore... Close your eyes and feel
the rain falling against your pale face, and listen to me, oh mortal one.
Night is soon at the door, but never again should you feel any pain
In the end there will be nothing, but silence and my rain.
Night is soon at the door, but think of the sun and warm summer days
In the end there will be nothing, but silence and my rain
Farewell, and may all of thy paths be glorious and green.’
And as I arose, I was somehow relieved, since there was no need to worry anymore
I won’t ever forget this night, ‘cause the mother earth told me to be strong
There I just stood alone, unspoken, there was no words left to say
I only watched at the dancing shadows and thought of her…
And maybe one day, our paths will cross once more
‘Cause I want to fall in love with you.. again..
I would want to be with you, now and forevermore..
