Oh, so many words
playing in front of me
Let me catch you fast
and make a bouquet
to present as a poem.
Oh, so many colours
dancing in front of me
Let me pick a bit of each tint
to shade a lovely rainbow
for my little princess to swing.
Oh, so many days
passing through my life.
Let me live each moment well
So I can renovate self as season
And gift my beloved a beautiful life.
Oh, so many emotions
Bursting inside as firecrackers
Let me explore, experience, live
As I am unbiased and embraces all emotions
which belongs to me and makes me what I am.
Oh, so many relationship
Heaven bestowed to bless my life
Let me nourish and cherish carefully
To make my life complete before I leave
So I never have to born again to live again.
