------------------------------------------------------

Wherever I go, My wife's ghost follows all the time.
While she was alive, She had all her time.
What does she want, now? I don't know!

While she lived, She had her full command.
What more, Does she want to show?
Why does she take me to her remand? I don't know!

I shiver with fear, when her ghost looks into my eyes.
It reminds the same fear, while she was alive.
Why so? I don’t know!

I try to visualize all this,and all I want to know.
Her ghost lives with me, Or do I live with her ghost?
I don't know!
