I had left all hopes
It was impossible
To reach you
To touch you
To feel you
Within a physical reality

Unfortunately, the length of the journey,
The distance between age,
Which did not support and persuade
To step towards you

I left you
I could not succeed to throw away
From my thoughts
I still think you
I still remember you
I still feel you around my feelings
Perhaps, I am still in love.
