Uncharted

When the sea rises above all hope

Drifting high and low to back and forth

Hailing storm and wind in mighty current

Stand strong, the night is almost over.

 

When your ship float in divided asunder

Sinking deep into the midnight waters

Abandoning all hopes of making it ashore

Cheer up, the shore is only a breath away.

 

When your comrades turn on you

They, fellow companions shaking with fear

Of perishing at night and lost to the sea

Be of good courage and charge them on.

 

When your worst fear dare come on you

The roar of many waters disquiet your soul

Your heart fails and your feet shakes

Remember your purpose, to be the moon.

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
