a shadow’s master

a shadow won’t ever leave its master.
it will faithfully accompany its master to the graveyard.
so let’s stop worrying each other,
we’ll be fine, walking our separated ways.

a shadow would tell the differences between light and darkness,
it will clearly reflect our heart, follow us thru years.
so what if we are no longer walk together ?
we have our own shadow, no one can separate it from us.

only when there’s no light
only when there’s no darkness
the shadow disappear,
just like us.

some people aren’t meant to be together til the end,
lets say a short-lived beautiful fate.
just because we choose different ways.
doesn’t mean one of us is wrong and the other is right.

somehow everything is crying;
the wind, the monastery bells, the rain, the breaths
my crying heart stops,
bittersweet, but it’s getting plain day by day.



it is a feeling felt not only for commoners,
me, the one who take a distance from them, also falls
and fail to guard myself from the drizzling rains
thick fog, clean air, you are standing in front of my eyes.

because of you i started a war for a peace
in this circle of life, i make my journey
at the end of the world, at the end of the road,
your image on that day emerged.


am i too attached to such thing as feelings
is it true that love is harder to let go than hatred

time passed, through many years
thought i could understand you better
later whenever stroll down in the city
realized you were just like a stranger

remember that day we’re walking together
the snow was thick so we sat under the tree
i threw my sight under the vast sky
as if was waiting for someone, even i had no one else but myself

now i still keep on walking along the path light by moon,
it seems lonely in the end
tracing my way back to home as a destination
as if my heart still beats for him under the graveyard

but feelings can change, none can keep it forever young
even i don’t have anyone else but myself, still i throw my sight under this vast sky.
