MONALISA SMILE


A broken bell ringing from up hill
Wedding a star girl and charming senior
Framed her lips in Monalisa smile
To honor guests in shock questioning

The senior lead the path away
Through tunnels and up down roads
Kept smile along the way while weeping
Out poured from the broken heart

Wedding forced by loving parents
Earthquake rocking almost two decades
Unable to melting down lava of love
Just wipe out cold water flooding

I am sorry can't return your true love
Except loving tree un sinned volunteers
Cold Priangan mountain killed me lonely
Wishing hug, holding me tight

Between a lots of friends approaching
Is any one able to switch my lips
From Monalisa smile to a smile of love

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
