By Walid Abdallah

I am the lion and this is my land

Everything kneels with one move of my hand

I have all the strength and power

I defeat any opponent in less than an hour

I wander about the whole earth

I never suffer from any kind of dearth

In front of me, everything kneels

I am the fear any creature feels

Despite my power, sometimes I feel weak

In your arms I don't fear to break

When I am in the sadness state

You aremy only soulmate

I am not afraid to feel weak in your arms

You are always the only heart that never harms

I always run for you to feel secure

In your hug I find true love so pure

Whenever I don't need anyone

You're always there my only sun

In your presence, I never feel lonely

My heart always needs your love truly

In front of my queen, I feel helpless

My love all the words fail to express

My lioness, you are the only army I own

You are the crown on my head and my throne

Only in your arms I find my rest

I forget I am the king of the forest
