Black eyed girl, fondly remembered,

The darkness that you have gifted my heart

I’ve treasured among all the brighter things;

In darkest forests one finds the rarest things:

The sweetest of fruits and the coolest streams,

The most impossible of elfin creatures;


The darkness you’ve given me was a gift

And though hope was a flame that failed,

The light of your kindness still burns brightly;

If you have given me these dark passages

You’ve also gifted this love for darkness,

The eyes that see into the heart of night;


I was once blinded by the great lights.

Only in this dark night I notice now

The bright stars and how they shine on me.
