- A letter that I didn’t send
- I am waiting for her.
- Lord Have Mercy.
- A Lover from the past!
- A Prayer from a broken heart
- The Tears of Warrior
- It’s only you who I love
- Silent Anger
- God bless you my dear friend
- In my dreams I saw an Angel
- The Gladiator who fights for glory
- The Clown is always sad
- Your last dance with me
- lesson learned
It’s really hard for me to admit
There are some things that I regret
Words I wish I’d never said
Stupid decisions that I did
Which took me to a bitter end
I wish I could go back in time
To diminish the curse that’s mine
But it doesn’t matter, I got the sign
When life gets much harder
