YAKORI


Yakori

I hear your name
It echoes a thousand times
But remains the same.

I float in its sound
Like a boat at sea, lost without a compass
And whirled round.

I shall take it
And make sweet music to match
My heartbeat!

I am armed
Ready for the battle in which
No one is harmed...

To make your name
The right of my lips!
