I always think about you
Every day and night
Your remembrance comes
As like a wave of fragrance
That touches my heart and mind
And I feel excited
I want to tell you my devotion
My feelings
And my deep affection
Sometimes, I want to know
What is your thinking about me?
That, do you also love me?
Sometimes, when I compare
My status with your status
I feel hesitation and difficult
Saying you, I love you
Sometimes, I make myself worry
I talk to myself
Again and again
About the consequences of differences
Between you and me, because,
You are like a fresh flower
And I am like a dry leaf
It is hard to realize the truth
Even though I am aware of that
But I cannot help thinking of you
I cannot forget you
You are my heart
My soul and my life.
