True Love

Broken hearts
Broken dreams
And in my nightmares you still torment me

Make me think of we could have had
Make me think of what we should have had
Make me think of what you took away

It wasn’t just your promises of a better day
It wasn’t your promises that we will always be okay
It wasn’t your promises that you’ll lead the way

It was the coldness you left
The tears I cried
And somehow to you everything was alright

It was your heartless manner
Your cold hearted ways
Your unfaithfulness
Your many plays

I wish I didn’t know you
For then I’d feel no pain
For you showed me true love
And then you took it away

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
