My Final Appeal for Your Love
Darling, this is my final appeal for your love.
If youíre not the one for me, who else can I turn to?
My youthful days are swiftly passing
And love wonít wait for me.
Happiness may come to me by the end of the term,
But Iím afraid time might not permit it.
Iím advancing in age and my health is fading
And so Iím making my final appeal for your love.
Iíve been around for a few decades
And Iíve seen good times come and go.
To my recollection, I had a brief love affair once;
A pretty but naive woman loved me.
It was a thrilling experience
And I enjoyed every moment of it,
But for one reason or another,
I let her slip out of my grasp.
Now I stand face to face with the harsh reality,
Those golden days will never come back.
In this crowded world, Iím dying of loneliness.
There are so many people around me,
Yet Iím alone as a deserted island.
I was badly bitten by love once,
Now Iím twice shy of love.
What more could anyone expect of me?
If I could only put myself inside your thoughts,
Then perhaps I could win your moody heart.
Put your arms around me and receive me warmly, baby,
While there is still time for romance
And console the most lovesick man in the universe.
Why should I go solo all the years of my life?
Am I the only lonely person alive?
Besides, why should any man or woman be alone?
Has the world run out of caring people?
These unanswered questions exacerbate the pain in my heart.
Come to my aid, you fantastic dame,
Lest apathy and seclusion should overwhelm me.
Iíve spent countless hours writing romantic poems.
Pen and notepad are still in my hands,
But what more is there to write about?
My mood has grown black.
Iím so weak and depressed,
Sometimes suicidal thoughts cross my mind.
Darling, Iím waiting on you.
And as I wait, to you Iím appealing,
Iím appealing desperately for your love.
