Tears Of Ink

Oh Life! Why this fate?
oh love! Why this day?
When choices are choose-less,
when the time is already late,
here i am, there she is,
with our inner feelings,
but we're too far to feel it,
adventure only can bring us back,
when we split.

Now at the junction,
she bows her head in for tears,
but i showed her the reason not to,
whilst i only fake my face,
disguising it with a smile,
i knows she loves me,
i love her too,
but to be together again,
is more than we two.

We promise to see again,
once in a blue moon,
to share our joy,
but as blue moon ever appear?
This is what i kept,
i kept it to myself,
and bid a forced farewell,
when i never thought it would end here.
