LIVE AND LET LIVE
Planets, sky, stars, terra, moon, sun
All of these are for everyone!
Beacon, water, air everything
Happiness to us, always bring!
The Lord never discriminates
So never should fight dear mates!
Come on, unity’s van, let’s drive
Broadcast message, “Live and let live!”
IN THOSE MOMENTS
Deserted pathway and yellow sunshine
My heart was shivering like leaves
When I held her hand
The leaves were broken by the trees
Eager to welcome us with open arms
In those moments, she whispered
I love you
In my mind began to blossom
Innumerable buds of hope
Autumn was in full swing!
WISH I COULD
Today the clouds are rolling in again
Today there is same wind blowing
Today there is same music in the atmosphere
Today the same weather is again
Today seeing again
Again and again
The same flickering of the waves
The same color of the open sky
There is a storm in the heart
There is a storm in the mind
There is a storm in the brain,
Everything is the same,
But you’re not here
Without you there is no meaning
Wish I could say to you again-
“Let’s going to walk by the sea!”
