Love

The other day I argued with my love
The other day I argued with my husband and now...
 
His hands no longer touch my neck
His hands no longer touch my waist
His hands no longer stroke my hair
He no longer looks me in the eye
And my heart aches
 
I love him so!
I love my darling so much!
I love him so!
I will always follow my love
Hodounanye hodounan
 
His hands no longer touch my neck
His hands no longer touch my waist
His hands no longer touch my breasts
He no longer caresses my face
And my heart aches
 
I love him so!
I love my darling so much!
I love him so!
I will always follow my love
Hodounanye hodounan
