She was someone I never knew well

Yet I couldn’t stop brooding about it

About her fathomless eyes

That faltered to look into mine

She was longing for somebody

And her eyes made it so clear

She wanted someone by her side

Who is away from her now

In the bottom of her heart, she knew

That she would never ever meet him

Yet her mourning heart wishes it

As it is her only hope to live

Her deep eyes revealed everything

The waves of fear rising in her

And the fire burning in her

Even when she knew the truth

Something inside told me

That it’s all over now

It isn’t unknown to her

Yet she is waiting, forever
