Now you been so far away
And can`t be seen anymore
Why should you worry?
My soul may soon die in dismay
But no way painting thy face anymore
You are erased like a dream
You were horrific night`s scream
Why should I carry?
Burden of thy innocent death
Even if it stops my must breath
You are gone now!
My son my lone daughter
Cruel fate made thou
The fire of human slaughter.

No friend …
Don`t ask today my broken soul
‘Move world for one more stroll’
Fear I fear my foot may trample
The life, the smile of child _
How man can be so wild _
No … by face he is human sample
Be cautious my son!
How deadly animals are disguised in
Human flesh: soft, pure their skin
Hush! No more fun!
Lest you may drown in blood
Shed of neighbor in neighborhood
My friend …
Don`t ask today my broken soul
‘Move world for …

Don`t take this rain as blessing
What is raining is sheer cursing
Upon thy prideful existence o` man
Your life, your worship all in vain
All this light, this music and laughing
Can`t stop my soul from sobbing.

My son my lone daughter …
You were the soul of my life
A humble touch alleviating my pain
Your face were curtain on day`s strife
But you are gone now like spring rain
Forever you are gone now …
