Waiting For You

Waiting for you,
at the festival of happiness,
at the meeting of friendship.
Waiting for you,
on the celebration of love,
in the statement of friendship
Wait for me too, my brother,
in the light of future,
in the shadow
under the tree of peace,
which is thirsty
only for love and brotherhood
my brother.
