The night my doors were blown away by the storm
I didn’t know
It was you who had come to my home
It became dark all around
Blown out was my lamp
For whom did I stretch out my hand?
I remained in the dark
Thinking it was a dream
Did I know
It was your flag that was flying in the storm?
In the morning I found
It was you who was standing there
Filling the emptiness of my home.
