(To: the love of my soul)
Do you remember when we were good friend? Do you remember when you caught me up?
To the old vendor we went, enjoyed the meal, Sat down on a rug, stared up the blue nite sky.
All we have done it together, like I have known you so long. Shared of what the life we lived for…laughing, weeping, loosing fear and loving…But you were not mine…
Do you remember when I gave you picture on your birthday? When the chapel welcomed us as he knew tomorrows…
When you gave me rose on your coming..But your eyes were thinking of someone else…
Time was going by as long as hoping…You were lost……faded away and crumbled my kindled dream……
Never did I stop finding. Number of people we’ve met, number of people we’ve lost
Such searching on someone like you I always did, and I did…between losing I prayed if we were meant to be together, nothing would separate us
And here… tomorrow has finally met us in a holy vow
Now everything is clear..We don’t use the veil anymore….We’re no longer saying as if we know nothing
Don’t you know I felt safe and glad with you…Looking on the leak roof…couldn’t sleep that nite
Baling out water from our 6 square feet rented shelter…Walking on the street with haze and jam
Holding up to upper bar with dozens of people in the bus..Never stopped you intended making me coffee in the morning,
Laughing as we forgot the past…joking as we used to do..Letting through those unpleasant days
And you were still the same…like I knew before..
But now….you’ve removed doubt of mine…
