You believe or don't,
But it mostly happens
If you intend
To coming to the beloved
At your choice, and time
It is then too late

O' my heart
It will not happen
To you
If it happens
It is very painful
This pain can break you,
You will be crying
You will be waiting
For the rest of your life,
But no one will come again
To complete your dreams
You saw that
In the eyes of your beloved.
