Looking forward to an awful one
at the moment, I will become present to the past
On that day, the angle of the eye will be wet
I was your shadow, too.
Do not remember these days How about today?
No, I could not take any reward.
In the flow of your daily life
I will wander, and no leaving any mark!
for a strange death.
All my activities will come to standstill.
And, you will forget me soon,
What a failing time spent
but, let's go back to being unharmed.==
