it might be, you were not aware
when you were young, you were under my care
i fed you when you were thirsty and hungry
the available meats, chicken and turkey  

i remember how your growl rumbled
and i felt so afraid
your eyes met mine like a spear 
piercing the deepest part of my fear

reminiscing, how sharp your fangs were
i really felt very scared
the first time you bragged about those teeth
i felt i'm already dead

through the shivering fears
i've seen you grabbed and attacked your prey
biting those cuts and deep-rooted wounds
i was a witness on how you slayed

now we've met again after so many years
your presence i missed, made me shed some tears
memories of you being ferocious in the wild
made me wonder how gentle you were, when you hug me 
like a child 

i wish we could be together, even for a short time 
so we could play again i missed to act in mime
kindness and love i have shown you then
i say, goodbye for now, 'till we meet again

please look at me one more time

before you say goodbye

leave a kiss on my lips

before my eyes start to cry

bring my heart as you go

and remember the things that we do

’cause the feeling still will show

beneath the smile that you throw

my nights will be colder now

as you walk away from me

my thoughts of you will remain

in my heart, I love you just the same…

I feel the hurt
Deep inside me
I feel the burn
My heart is going crazy

I have no choice
To be free but lonely
Then your heart rejoiced
Forgetting me, your one and only

Free as the colors of rainbows
See how it vanished in the sky
Leaving me with all the sorrows
When you finally said goodbye

Tiny and bigger rocks
Littered on the sandy shore
Just like lives here on earth
You stepped on them then you ignored

Gone for another love
In the arms of someone else
My love you’ve felt was not enough
Losing me, I will be tough…
