Just wish I die
I know you can hear my heart cry
Even if it doesn’t matter to you the length at which I sigh
But why?

You told me I was your groom, yet you took me like your broom
You told me I was your honey and made me spend all my money

I took away my pride just to make you my bride
I almost lost my life trying to make you my wife

I pampered you, yet you had me in your pampers
I decided not to let your dreams slip-off, yet you took me like your slippers

I bought you many phones just to make sure you never lose your tones
I even forsook the scriptures, believing that in you I could find the true picture of my future

I disobeyed my mother just to make you my first choice
I made you number one my merit list, yet you had me last on your supplementary list

I wrote your name with a golden pen in the widest tablet of my heart
And made you my priority, yet you had me in the minority

Like major networks, I made you glow with pride and rule your world everywhere you go, and now you are talking

Why do you disappoint my feelings and get me kneeling
You make my heart skip per second billing with no filling

My heart is failing me…
My kidneys are losing their bonds in covalence
My members are in search of a new beginning
For darkness has eaten up the silent chord of a gentle soul

If only I listened
If only I read the sign
 If only I knew the season and time

If only I searched the scriptures
If only I saw the future
If only I could have another chance to make it better
But only if I waited…
