Suddenly, you disappeared from sight,
Absent from the places you frequent,
Though I thought it’s not fair,
I let you maintain the status quo.
A month later you reappeared,
Like an apparition in front of me,
Looking haggard and pale,
As if misfortune stuck to you like glue.
You said you have no money,
That’s what I thought, too.
You said you want to borrow,
That’s what I was afraid of.
You said you will pay me,
That’s what I heard the last time.
You said you will not disappear,
That’s old tune.
You said you promise to God,
I said, : How much?
