The Bargain For Life

The Wretched
He used to sit at the front row of the pew
He is the choirmaster.
The knell never tolled
Litanies sung in the bar
Psalms murmured in ripples piece
Mourners in mixed shades Faces of guffawing smiling friends
And his eternity box bear no cross
No colouring.
And carved by the barmen
He died in the cathedral
And buried in the bar.

The Wealthy
He used to sit in the front row of the bar
He is the chief drinkard
The knell tolled intermittently
Litanies mourned in full cry
Mourners in black shades Faces of sobriety and sad friends
And his eternity golden ocher box bear cross
A golden colour box
And carved by the cathedral.
He died in the bar
And buried in the cathedral.

The flowing beach
the setting half gloomy sun
Kiss in the moon

Need not say the word

Our hearts screams it loud enough

The sea our witness

At the cool of the evening
Our love show to the world
It can endure the test of time,
And the roaring of the sea
Show our love
Strength to stand the test of man.

In a cool wonderful serenity, our love blossom.
By the seashore, holding each other till eternity.
As the ocen waves splashing forever.
