A year older...


Today I turn a year older
It seems just yesterday he aroused
Her
He helped her carry through nine
Months
He even held her hand trough birth
Every tear was like the last drop of water to her
He placed me like a seal over her heart
She handed me over to him
For their love is a strange as death
It's jealousy unyielding as the grave
It burns like blazing fire with mighty flames...
Water cannot quench their love
River cannot wash it away
All the wealth in the world could not
Buy their love
That made me a year older today......10 august 2013 happy birthday to myself

That is for ever England. There shall be
