when will the next Autumn be?
it won’t be late for me to see
though cold wind and lonely nights
keep tearing my skin, making me numb
those days we held each other tight
I seek warmth and comforting love.

tonight shall be the longest night
leaving shadow with half moon in sight tonight there will be tears in the sky
just as there will be tears on faces
gloom in heart of those wishing to cry
like snow falling on a tropical oasis
yet, it makes me alive and stronger
I see coming days, bright and longer.
