Meeting at the ball, my gaze pasts those who mean nothing to me

i look outside to the beautiful garden that never captures the attention of those who loves beauty the most.

i sneak away from the boring social scene and turn in circles of joy to escape the pressures of attending the balls

i spy the huge fountain in the middle of the garden and sit down and play in the water and spot a beautiful white rose in the water

i reach my hand toward it hoping to have it as a memory of this garden

i grab the rose and feel another's hand on mine, scared of being surprised i yelp a bit.

The hand receded and a man's voice ws heard on the other side of the fountain

into the darkness i follow he sound of his voice and try to find out whose voice it was.

but i couldn't find him, disappointed i walk back to the fountain and start to sing my favorite lullaby.

i went to the garden to get away from the introductions and meetings of the rich aristrocats

i walk quietly out to the garden where i know they wouldn't dare go if they wanted to remain clean and keep their appearences.

i go through the well-known maze and appear at the fountain where mother loved to take me when she was still alive,

there used to be white roses growing in this fountain but since her death they stopped growing

huh? but they shouldn't be growing here, no one has taken care of them since her death

i want to keep it as a reminder of her forever

i grab it but a smaller hand grasped it first and made a shriek, i quickly apologize and leave

fearing that she will shout at me, i run back through the maze and take the secret entrance back to the hall

before i leave i stop and listen to the lullaby that i think the girl i accidentally held hands with was singing

it was sweet, soft and filled with love

i hope that one day i could meet that face that the beautiful song is coming from

someday i hope.
