For ten years I have mourned your absence. 
Since your soul have ascended into His Mercy, 
Each second of each day rebirths the memory of my grief.

Yes, I deserve to see you in my dreams.
My hands can kiss your chest,
Pump life into your heart

I will exhale all of me in prayers, until
In rescuing you
I rescue me
