Whenever I turn my head

Reminiscing over the past

The good old days

When the heat of our love

Flowed endlessly

I shed a golden tear

My journey of hope

Which started well

With hope, open and faith

Ended abruptly

My weaknesses and mistakes

Were all that started and ended my day

That it became impossible to live on

And you broke the vow of my heart

By eloping with a quick hurling eagle

Behind my shadow

Now I’m undergoing an endless pain

Torturing myself because of loving you

Is it too much to ask

Or too useless to think of?

Sometimes what you give

Is not what you always get!
