Tibet is still not china.


Lotus blossoms
Scattered on a lake.
When will my love come back to me?

Lotus blossoms borne
By the wind to the mountains.
When will she be free?

Lotus blossoms
Strewn on the path.
When will my love walk this way?

Lotus blossoms
Whispering in the trees.
When will my love hear this?

Lotus blossoms
Soft upon her skin.
When will she feel this again?

Lotus blossoms
In the pages of a book.
When will my love read this?

Lotus blossom
Scent of jasmine and saffron.
When will my love know this?

Lotus blossoms
Like nectar on the tongue.
When will she forget her pain?

Lotus blossoms dance
In the flickering flames.
When will my love speak her name?
