To My Own Life



Without saying a word at all like a mute
Without attempting to lsee like a blind
Like a silent night that fades in the dew
I could see a light coming out in that night
That was coming, as if to show me the light
When I heard the cry, calling from her side

Without having no much long words to say
When I saw the tears as stars in her eyelips
Could also see a fragile mind that shall break
If I open my mouth to say an other single word
Since her mind was seen wounded by the fate
When I heard her say, Please be near and beside

Without showing any other sign other than a smile
I went on to hug her with my loving mind and soul
When I did feel her heart pounding with happiness
Though her eyes also was seen flooding with joy
Since all the dark scars of her bruised heart faded
When she reached my arms and to my own life.
