Your emotions
Your feelings
Your imagination
Display and exhibit
Your ambitions, for desires, dreams,
Sweet and lovely concepts
Within the waves of flames
That all dominate

To understand ups and downs
When you able to realize

Whenever that happens
Don't be sorry
And never feel desperate
Just remember
Someone, somewhere still awaits
For you
To shower
To blossom
Love, respect, truth, honesty
Sincerity, tolerance
And acceptance
Without conditions and obligations
To build self-confidence
Even though you may also leave someone
For your happiness
There will be not any objection
And complaint
It holds a true and pure love
Waiting for you, oh, my beloved
