As the wave rose from the infinite horizon, I tried to seize the last glare of the sunset’s ray.
My footprints were left on the beach, but the tide washed them away.
Never saw the sea-gull I was waiting for, I begged the mailman to take my overdue pay.
The sky was still blue as the sea was. They never delivered the words that I used to say.
I woke up again in midnight, wiping sweat off my face.
It was that nightmare again; I was weak back in that place.
Scare compelled me to stay awake. Night was so long with the sun’s laggardly pace.
Just like flying without winds, I was afraid to fall before reaching your embraces.
For four years, even when you were badly sick, I wasn’t by your side,
Still remembered last time I left home; you kept the door open wide.
Everything here triggered you sensitive spirit, tragedy was what you could never bide.
Enjoyed tenderness from your messages, also your grumble of loneliness you couldn’t hide.
Miss you so much Mom, as I stand here today with the world as my witness.
With the gravest devil, I propose my everlasting promise.
I’ll love you with my heart and soul; and guard you with my manliness.
As long as I love you, may your life is blessed with health and endless happiness.
