"EXEPT FROM YOU"

 

Except from you

Wish to not have a life.

There lodged a lot of nostalgia and missing in my heart.

If you went silently,

You are not guilty,

I know that all bad comes from mail.

 

When I’m thinking of you,

I am sad,

And have no mood.

All the day and night I’m Writing a letter to you,

I’m writing a  poetry to you.

To be alongside with you only an one hour,

I Feel the suffering of the road,

Eight days at a stretch.

 

I’m exhausted by you,

I’m pity for you,

Without you,

I have no heart.

Take care of yourself,

I could not keep you,

Creator is with you!

I believe.
