Where The Future Lies


You look like a member of the sky
Smile like stars in a dark cloud
Carry yourself like butterfly,
Swimming in the bottomless sea of winds

Men themselves couldn’t help
But marvel at your ladylike manners
You make the raven rage with envy
Make nature green with desire

The girls themselves couldn’t fathom the secret
Of your grace,
You’re flawless like a pearl
A gemstone

I will never forget the day you left my side
On a journey you are yet to return,
But I’m never tired of waiting
Not today, I don’t see it happening tomorrow

The future will meet me here, waiting for you
You are the future I’m waiting for!
