You laboured so much, that I barely have
known but for sure, for my sake, for us all.
I never said I love you, but I do,
You’ve never asked me.
Tomorrow, the sun will come out
To celebrate the life
You will never forget and so do I,
Won’t remember the flooding rain in my soul.
I’ve noticed your hair turned silver,
Years of unwavering courage
I have not been there to share with you
My joys, even my griefs. I’m maybe afraid
Of the shadows though I never doubted,
You’ll ever leave me in the dark.
Yes, I do speak in prose,
Would it confuse you,
But then I don’t know the tongue
Still, I’d say my bid to tell you
How much you mean to me, and this I know.
I LOVE YOU.
