Love is very firm and the strong
In its purity

It will also pass away
As passes every subject away

I kept my words
I proved my love,
But you failed
Your love was not real
You just flirted
You didn't prove
Your love and reality
You will remain to flirt
With your friends
One day, you will taste
Bitter results
No one will see you,
You will be all alone
Because of your wrong deeds.
