Yes, it’s been a long fight; as I lost my eyesight
But I still recollect the red dress bright,
That you gifted me on my twentieth birthday
And truly made my day,
Taking me out for dinner with candlelight.
Rocked the dance floor till late at night
Never danced like that before, you know, right?
Your warm embrace put my worries at bay
But since then, yes, it’s been a long fight.
Our anger often dissolved after the cockfight,
Like the sugar cubes in the coffee at night.
You promised, forever with me, you will stay,
But you did not keep your word and left me midway,
Oh, why do I have to endure this plight?
Yes, it’s been a long fight.
