Along luminous lane of love
My heart found you
A sweet scent you perfumed
That allured me to your arms
But this day, you poison my soul
with bitterness in your words
Do our hearts still magnet?
Is this how it should be?
Gently like a shadow you are sinking
I call you back omaricham
with this voiceless poem of mine
I pray my pleadings to find Its way to your heart
As it is dangling in the street
Seeking your silver soul
Remember you are my everest
the one that keeps me above the rest
Nne I do with all my strength
Want your love
That unceasing care
I don't want to loose you right on the race
My lips are frozen by frost
My heart as tarttared as my thought
Should I leave thee
Calling us past?
Can I forget dreaming about you
all day; all night?
For night a silent and bitter period is
If you should go like this
I am gone.
