The Promise of the World

The smile that trembles deep behind your tears
Is the promise of the world since the beginning of time

Even if I’m alone now, from our yesterdays
Today is born sparkling
Like the dag when we first met

You’re not in my memories
u turn into a breeze and touch my cheeks

Even after our parting in the afternoon with the sun beaming through the trees
The promise of the world won’t ever end

Even if I’m alone now, tomorrow is limitless
u taught me about
The kindness that lurks in the night

You’re not in my memories
So live forever in the song of the streams
In the color of this sky, in the fragrance of flowers
