(A poem, to the one I adore)


Why is the moon so bright tonight?

Why is the oceans so calm tonight?

Why are there chirping birds tonight?

The silhouette of the moon on water is bright


Why is my heart beating fast tonight?

Many thoughts engulfs my mind tonight

Why is talking to her now my delight?

Where is the pain that weakens my might?


These days are lonely days 

These days are thoughtful days

The heart crave for her to stay

Why do I feel this way?


Ah, why is this coming now?

Oh, what will I do now? 

Why do I feel that I'm in love?

Am I not that innocent as a dove?


When would this life be fair to me?

Oh goodness, just this one chance

Oh heavens, I cry, hearken to me

Give me the reason in life to prance 


Who am I? Where do I come from?

Would she accept where I came from?

What if this is my fate?

Would she understand my life's state?


Would this feelings be over?

I wish I have the power 

I feel she is the one to wipe my tears

The one I've been waiting over the years


For once let me have what I desire

To my dearest one let me be her desire

Let the heavens hear my prayers

For love I pray, oh hear my prayers

Nevertheless, let heaven's will prevail.
