I still remember
Those days of my youth
Which I forfeited
Like a mighty storm;
Crossing the border to manhood
Like a house wife;
I performed all house duties
Like a garden boy;
I kept my home clean and tidy
Like a nanny;
I took care of the children
I was only given free churching permit
My youth passed before me
It was dream.

I still remember
Skipping all care
Jumping gutters every night
Passing all my dongas coming to you
I was accustomed to be your blanket;
You consoled me
During cold winter night
When gentle cold breeze
Wrap my face with its cold hands
Life chokes my throat
Love froth within my heart,
What we had was not futility
You accustomed to smile
And showed teeth slightly to me

I still remember
My shoulder was your crying station
Our minds debilitated together
In the ripple confusion of pleasure
I was snared in a furrow of life
With your fairly light brown skin
Like a goat in the middle of Mauritius

I still remember
I used to take you under my wings
And heal all your heart bruises
I gave you the love you needed
But I didn’t gave you the pleasure you needed most
You’re desirable, but my heart was old
Old enough, in a young body
Out of astonishment my aridity youth desires were left

Forgive me, oh! forgive me
I skipped my youth
And jumped into the manhood train
Only what I need is to redeem what we had before
Before the hoof of tale kicked it away
Do you still remember?
