Remember our first kiss when you held me tight,
I told you you were my kind of woman,
and you said I was your knight.
That same night we made love like true lovers,
When you fell asleep, I felt so complete.
Then when you had to leave; at first I felt at ease,
Pretending it was the right thing to do for two people
born to be in love not meant to be together.
I was in two minds: to run after you or to reverse the time,
Both were impossible. Might as well cry!
I wrote to you many times, but you did not reply?
I tore down all your pictures in order to hide my crime
but I couldn’t wipe your memories off my mind.
I think of you from time to time, smiling from the inside
At the great times we’ve had.
I should be just thankful for the good times we shared
May be it was our destiny to meet, and then to break.
