Though I can see, but in your absence I am blind.

Though I can see, but in your absence I am blind.

Though I can see, but in your absence I am blind.
When you are not around, anything I can not find
Want to see you always morning or evening at 9
When you are at work, text me or call me is fine

You are my beacon light, be with me very kind
Two body one soul, always towards me incline
Will be a my death day, if you don't call me at 9
Memory of past exciting time, charge my mind

While cooking or cleaning thinking with you to dine
Then I am excited to talk, to open up heart of mine
Both are one; forget everything else like to entwine
Our hearts reconnected to beat at the same chime

See our understandings reached at mountain height
Our love multiplied by four folds, it is a cooling sign
I am surprised to see you become humble and kind
In control of your ego, an impossible task intertwine

What happen in last couple of day's good mood is not in
See you are tense & upset, should I ask you being kind
Thinking how to do, as it being a difficult task to side line
All of a sudden he smiled and kissed me at a right time
