I woke up in this castle,
I felt lonely as usual.
Then I looked into the mirror,
And wished I could see myself clearer.

Out in the garden,
Where my anger is pardoned,
These flowers I grew,
Had petals that flew.

But then one morning,
A girl was passing.
She stole some flowers,
Which made me think for hours.

One night when I was guarding,
I pretended that I was sleeping.
So out of curiosity,
I followed her anonymously.

When I arrived and saw,
I looked at her in awe.
Since I never knew her past,
I made this moment last.

Day and night,
My heart soared with all its might.
But no, I won’t confess.
Because it is a mess.

Unexpectedly I realized
This flower is specialized.
This flower that is rare,
She can forever bear.

She never came back,
My feelings lacked.
So I wore a mask to hide the sorrow,
Hoping this won’t happen tomorrow.
