For whom the day ends in despair?

For whom the night wanders and whirls?

For whom the day ends in despair?

For whom the birds mourn and sing?

For whom the empty edifices scream?

For whom the city weeps silently?

For whom the sky fades in anguish?

//

What keeps them awake

In the darkest of nights

From shuting the eyes

From letting the mind

and heart asleep?

//

In whose parting

The stars ignite?

For whose glimpse

The moon beseech to shine bright?

For whom

The silence

Remain silent?

//

For whom?

The wretched night wanders and whirls?

For whom the day ends in despair?

//

The cursed tranquility

Of the morning breeze

The doomed silence

Of the night speaks

//

The haunted tales

Of missing daughters

From nameless cities

To well known streets

For what crimes our daughters are killed?

For them the night wanders and whirls!

For them the day ends in despair!
