CHASING THE WIND

When I was born I opened my eyes and saw a smiling face
I thought I already won the medal but I just began the race
At fist I didn't cry but I discovered everyone frown again
But when I began my tears, they all shout as if insane

So my mother brought me to this strange land with pain
They celebrate over my mischief after 8 days, they gave me a name
They all drunk and ate, dancing, rejoicing again and again
Why do this people rejoice and celebrate in vain

I began my race and asked myself what I came to do in life
I keep running but no stop, it seems like a roundabout
What do man want in life than to build a house?
Then who becomes the owner after which they died?

I thought and thought and wet this paper with my ink
What on Earth will man do with all his want and need?
This question do baffles me for days and weeks
But now I know that life is just like chasing the wind.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

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..
