Why can’t i just love you?

Why can't I just love you

If the morning still comes, one after one
It’s because I need another day,
To find the words,
To write them down,
To find the way,
To let you know,
That I love you and I will always do.

If the wind still blows, from place to place
It’s because I need them to transport my message,
From me to you, far away
To let you know,
That I am right here,
Waiting for you,
No matter how long it will take, I will wait.

If the rain is still falling down, drop after drop
It’s because I like to sit here,
Near my window,
Spending my time,
Watching the rain,
And at the same time,
I could think about you,
The rain is beautiful, exactly as how you look like.

If the birds are still singing, louder and louder
It’s because I ask them to sing a song,
The song that I wrote especially for you,
And when you hear it,
You would know,
You would feel,
How long I have waited for you
How much I love you, how much I care about you.

If you still hear the sermons, from pagoda to pagoda
It’s because I am praying for you,
I am praying to meet you one day,
I will bring you to Van Restaurant,
I will bring you to Chinese Restaurant,
I will bring you to Pizza Company,
I will bring you to KFC,
Anywhere you like, I will invite you a dinner.

If the empty Cyclo is still there, down the Sisowath Quey
It’s because I ask the driver to wait,
I know soon or later you will arrive,
You and I, we will make a ride,
Around the City,
To the Riverbank,
To Wat Phnom,
To Phsa Thmey,
And you will see how happy I am, to have you near.

Everything is possible my dear, even you are near or far
Why can’t I just love you?
Why can’t I just think about you?
Why can’t I just miss you?
And if even you don’t exist,
Why can’t I just create you?

End.

    oh it is not a parole, not even a poem but it’s just a text. the music was inspiring me to find the way.

    i listened to this music while i wrote the text and i think it could become an accompanying music for my text, that’s why i put the music here :-)

    I mean the parol. I thought it is a song not a music ;-)

    hello KB.. i went to Van Restaurant yesterday to join my friend’s birthday party.. I arrived a bit earlier than others.. someone bring a Menu for me to choose what i wanted to eat.. i thought about an easy food but in fact it was not easy to find in that Menu.. i looked lelf and right in the Menu book ( lelf side is the food’s name/title and right side is the price).. i finally found it.. it was a Steak with salad (they said Aussie’s steak).. it cost 19us$ and a bottle of coke, 2.5us$.. the sauce was ok but when i asked for chili they said NO HAVE HERE!.. Van Restau. is a nice place.. 60′s French-colinial-building.. it’s a 5star Retau..
