No matter which direction I go,
what work I engage in,
what hobby I pursue,
what clan I submerge,

Not even the new town,
or the old streets,
the serenity in some mountain folds
or guffaws of a dear friend

Not even in the dreams
or the temporary blithe in some newfound love
can I surcease you from my thoughts

for you are cast
with a permanent ink
on every one of my senses
and no matter where I go
you relentlessly follow my world
