I am neither a rich
Nor a poor
My heart is full of love
I am far from insulting
Hurting and harming anyone
I take the pain of others

If I look around me
I have everything
But when I feel and think
I miss a beautiful sweetheart
My life journey-mate
My imagination reveals
That to me is You
Only You.
