I am a prisoner
Locked up in my cocoon
Nightmares my only companion
Smiles and tears console me.

You are my Juliet
And am your Romeo
We are closely apart
But here you are in my dreams.

At night your shadow
Comes like an apparition
Keeping my lonely heart company
Your words rejuvenate my sicky emotion.

Why are we closely apart?
The memories of your kisses and hugs
torment my soul,
I will love you forever.
