heart of the selfish and greedy

your erouding soul was night;
i held your hand,told you it'll be alright
i raised your hopes but now you forgot,
you remember me not!

life vexed,tried and pained you,
your skin grew dry and pale
they cracked brains to compose your memorial tale;
but i loved you and gave you strength
now you forgot that day: October the 10th

i assembled scattered fragments of your spirit
with my loving breath i baptized you;
now you forgot how you looked through my eyes and cried...
how i fought for you when you nearly died...

i came when heartaching memories were past,
when you gained strengh at last
but you gave me the negation of what i hoped for
you told me you don't know me!
