I was a lonely little charmer
All busy in myself
My humming was not
Heard by any flower;
I was such a bee.
You came and released me
From the depth of my ocean.
I am a swimmer reaching the shore today.
You put me on a magic spell of friendship;
I am charmed by your piousness.
This glory is a flower
Looking beautiful even
When the seasons are desolate.
I salute to all the friends in the world.
I am a seeker still
I did not know you
Were also seeking for someone like me.
Our seeking eyes met and
We desired together
To cross the tide of our time.
Tomorrow that brings a fortune is waiting
Around the clock of our shared time.
