6. Single Day

It’s the sort of night when sunset lasts forever,
when a mask of silence settles like a glove,
when a midnight train throws echoes to the river:
You remember how it feels to fall in love.

When the sky still bears the trace of daylight’s fingers,
and you think the birds will sing the whole night through,
on the riverbanks the ghost of noon still lingers:
I don’t regret a single day I spent with you.

The summer’s splendour only lasts a moment
before the winter chills the dew,
so on this night let’s put our arms around each other:
I don’t regret a single day I spent with you.

I can hear the horses stamping in the darkness,
‘cos the daybreak is about to join the view.
Can they carry me away without you waking?
I don’t regret a single day I spent with you.

The summer’s splendour etc.
