Luwi Habte

(19 march / Asmara)


In the hard times
While I was leading folks lives
A friend was my helper
Who let my disturbing over

In the times acted to shorten my life
While I fed up with life which is unsafe
A friend was my shepherd
My salvation like a guard

The one who listen silently
And the one who speaks fluently
He was my savior in trouble
Also my light in the dark like a candle

Dedicated to great friend of mine Jonathan
