Like a breath,
So short is the life of man.
Shall you make this little time of mine worthwhile?
I know nothing,
Will you teach me?
Shall your patience not run out in my presence ?
I always try,
Shall you endure and your smile egg me on ?
When my vulnerable heart is hurt,
Will I see your tears?
When they see me fall,
Will your hand raise me?
They never gave me a chance to express myself ,
Will you let me be me?
Like seasons mistakes always fall upon,
the life of every man,
When I confess,
Will you find a place in your heart for me ?
Life is all about trials,
If I fail,
Shall your cloth wipe off my tears?
With every effort,
Will I make you proud?
They always tell me I am nothing,
Am I something in your presence?
When the shadows of death surround me,
Shall I see daylight in your eyes?
When I call out,
Will you be the first to answer in the morning?
If I win,
Will you be my first embracement?
In my despair,
Will you still care?
When I am homeless,
Will your heart be open for me?
When they blame me,
Shall my objection stand by you?
In my struggles,
Will you be my hero?
My lonely heart,
Will its void be filled with you?
When about to fall,
Will you hold on me strong?
When they see darkness in me,
Will you see light somewhere?
Will my heart find peace in you?
In my absence,
Will you feel lonely?
When they ask,
Will you be my answer?
When I am hopeless,
Will you be my hope?
Will your prayers mention my name?
Will I be the weakness of your heart?
Will your heart choose me always?
Are we to see tomorrow together?
Will my happiness be your happiness?
Shall my sorrow be your belonging?
Are we to share the same world?
