' I Will Wait


I will wait
Like a prisoner
Behind the corrugated bar
Where your love had imprisoned me
I will wait, for a day
When maybe you need me
Perhaps you may release me
And take me along this journey
Which is now my fantasy
I will wait, for a day, for my turn
Behind the tomb
Where Romeo died for love.
I will wait, for a day, for a year
But I will not be impatient
For if Romeo had waited
Perhaps he may live happy with Juliet.
And when the drama was ended
It was a sad ending
But I am still here waiting
And I will wait, for a year, for an age

My love never will fade. And because my love is true. I will wait, yes, I will wait for you.
