For long I searched endlessly
For years I peregrinated for a love so scarce
For you I had waited in great anticipation
For a love so true my heart yearned so desperately
Then in horizon you materialised
The blossoming beauty your being oozed
Touched my heart in profound desperation
The budding love I hitherto kept within
To maturity my love germinated for you
Your presence brought a great relief
Your love unchained my heart in chains.
Years of endless sojourning in search for love
Your love finally terminated.
For you I will trudge the world
For you I will give my world
For you I will forsake the world
For your love is pure and true.
