I LOST A GEM.(part 1)


I lost a gem
too young to be deceived i was
that after the last days he shall rise
Hm! truly i lost a gem

i lost a gem
repeating the word mama
but none to call pa
now i know i lost a gem

i lost a gem
time now for him to see
me taking my pallet to walk
now his no more, i lost a gem

i lost a gem
whose place took a chunk in my heart
night needs night for me to collapse my theprapy
that truly, he cant be so important, i lost a gem

i lost a gem
but nevertheless am strong
taking the bull by the horn
if that is the cure of his therapy
at the underground world he use to plough
when he was man alive
definately i will sugar-colt his heart
to see that his left over ten
has made him alive.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
