When times were rough and life got tough,
When sorrows were rooted deep in my heart,
When my mind seemed to be engulfed in deep-seated agonies of my past,
And when tears rolled down my cheeks upon the slightest strike of hard luck.
I will never forget those days.
Those days when the howls of my heart were left unheard,
When my soul pined for love for a thousand years.
Why do I feel so incomplete despite all that I have?
Oh lord! Why do I have to battle the turmoil between my heart and my mind?
To escape those predicaments, I often strolled to a place where the horizon was at sight.
A place far away from the hectic and cruel world outside.
Far across the distance laid the deep blue sea.
Its sight gave my heart a soothing ease.
I settled down on the bed-like sand,
My knees hugging close to my chest.
The chilly breeze caused a shiver down my spine.
Slowly and calmly, I reflected on the miseries in my life.
I convinced myself that life would be fine.
After all, the first glow of light comes after the darkest hour of the night.
