My love

My love1 has gone far away
And may never come back
My love has gone far away
And may never come back
 
He has left his family and friends behind and gone away
He may never come back
What am I to do? He was my friend and my confidant
How is he? Just let me know how you are
 
He has left his family and friends behind and gone away
He may never come back
What am I to do? He was my friend and my confidant
How is he? Just let me know how you are
 
You have gone to a faraway land
I miss you greatly
You have always been my guide
And I love you with all my heart
My love has taken off
Who knows when he will come back?
 
My love has gone far away
And may never come back
My love has gone far away
And may never come back
 
My love, my love
My love, my love
 
My darling has gone far away
And may never come back again
He has gone to live in a faraway country
He has not told me anything
It was not the rough morning weather
That prevented me from seeing him
Nor the heat of the midday sun
Not even the dangers of going out at dusk
Because I could not sleep well if I didn’t see you
 
  • 1. Nterini means my love, my friend, my confident
Thanks!
