Ini adalah untuk Anda cintaku - There goes the man that was my lover

There goes the man that was my lover - Ini adalah untuk Anda cintaku

there goes the man
that was my lover…

what else can I say
if not even my moaning stirs
the fella who heaves   
his back on rocks
with me in arms

even the ashes remember
when he was nothing

I made water from the rocks
so we could bath

when he comes back                                           regretful
my memories
will unchain his neck
