I was yours; I am yours
I shall stay, yours
Even I was a failure
I am a failure
I may remain a failure
To see you; to meet you
To hold you in my arms
To touch your entity
To kiss your rose lips
To hear, your heartbeats
To smell your fragrance
I dance and dance with you,
In my imaginations,
I visualize, your smile
Your clicks of eyelids
The splitting hair
And your voice
All that, knock my thoughts
Embrace my life
Catch my entity
Surround, my ways
I have no way to escape from you
You exist within me, as a soul
My spirit and power
Its name is, Love; it runs in my blood
I feel you everywhere
You are my love, first and last.
