I know no man before or after me
Could pen a word, my pining to convey.
Thus when you find yourself again with me,
Our rejoining will mark a splendid day.
The earth at night could never crave the sun,
Nor could the desert ever yearn for rain.
The way I wish our distance be undone;
The way I wish the miles would melt away
But now it seems we’ll always be apart.
It seems that seeing you is out of sight.
Your absence leaves a hole inside my heart.
Not being with you brings a dreary night.
As long as mountains stand and rivers flow,
You’ll be here in my heart, my heart to know.
