It happened when I traveled to Fantasia,
Riding in an old ship called Galactica,
There’s a super storm name Nympha,
That’s why our ship turned into pieces,
That’s the beginning of my endless stories.
It’s my 10 years alone in a far away island,
Surrounded by the most beautiful sands,
My way of living is so simple and a little bit hard,
But I overcome it and I survived as God is my guard.
One day while I’m having my hearty lunch,
I heard a loud sound from a distance,
It’s a helicopter with some soldiers,
They are here!! At last my rescuers!
Before I leave the unforgettable place,
I would take with me my precious old necklace,
An old paper with my ten years of hand writings,
And a white single shell with a beautiful carvings
During my stay in a mysterious world,
Memorable things make me go on living,
For they are my strength and it really my treasured,
I will cherish all the experiences and sufferings,
Today I feel happiness in my heart and the pain finally cured.
