Forgive me for not counting the fleeting moments
When I am near you.
Time seems considerately blameful to each glances I take…
From soul to soul…as face to face.
I couldn’t hold back your reluctance…
Neither my apathetic mindfulness.

I think you understand my reasons…
Don’t try to search for answers,
I am confused to this instance of silence,
Bewildered by my acclaimed sentiments.

Our destinies are on the cross-roads mislead by our thoughts.

Freedom is endless between the earth and the sky…

Let go this feeling…
Drown into the depth of desire;
Bless the very sense of my existence,
Liberate my heart and unchain my love.

Blowing winds, please carry me to those unknown places
You and I could reach only in dreams.

Let it be this way…
Perhaps distance is the panacea.
My heart must go on and on.

Whoever and whatever I am to you,
You will always remain to me…my protector, my comforter, my lover
And likewise my truest friend;

Whenever life’s prelude will end…
The beginning to these bitter-sweet miseries
will be my good-bye,
So hurting to utter…

However in all my reveries…
