Remember our first kiss when you held me tight,
I told you you were my kind of woman,
and you told me I'm your knight.
That same night we made love like true lovers,
then you fell asleep, I felt complete.
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 let you go,
For I don't want you to hurt, this is unfair.
I wrote to you many times, but you didn't reply?
I tore down all your pictures in order to hide my crime,
but I couldn’t wipe your memories of my mind.
I think of you all the time, those great memories
hurt my aching heart.
I should be just thankful for the good times we shared
May be it was our destiny to meet, and then to break.
