Whoever Came She Showed Letters

My wife is a surprise
Who never knew; know it from me
For whoever came she showed the letters
I had gone very far from my country
And with this my girlfriend
I had confidence
That I would come and make
A family.

I made a promise that after
My seven year's contract abroad
I would come back and marry her
Every year
I sent her a letter through mail
It never even possessed much content
Sometimes it never even reached in time
It said, "soon, am coming and we get married"
So whoever came she showed letters and he never came again
