I see the fear in your eyes and the pain on your face
the dignity you deserve...not shown is such a disgrace.
I look in those eyes which are so distant from me
I look in those eyes which are so near to me.
Those tears that are shed are due to uncaring minds
those tears that are shed are due those oh so blind.
Please help me exist as it was meant to be
to prove to those cruel souls what my life should see.
If obstacles exist and bars are in view
than pray for me my friends until I am safe among you.
Kei is my name as I'm sure you'll not forget
you've tried to free me and there shall be no regret.
Kei, dear Kei we've attempted your plight
We'll join you someday and view you at first sight.
Your precious to so many and of course your own kind
We'll all be re-united as this you will find.
I'm frail and hurting from this ailing sick body
some day I'll be younger and playful with many
I'm too tired and restless to beg for a real meal
I'll be carefree while swimming and romping through fields.
I'll dream of my homeland and those fortunate to roam free
As I'll join in their antics some day and be me.
This plea for freedom is my only reward
When I leave this cruel existence, thus my story shall be told.
I'v waited and waited for 13 long years
To join my immediate family.....joyfully filled with tears.
I hear you replay this last act out with your sweet mind
To not accept this final decision would truly be unkind.
Your beauty and strength will return once again
Although no bars will hold you ...you'll be free in the end.
We'll still fight for your justice for the royal that you are
And tell the world your desolute story from near and far.
Kei is living within our spirit and mind
She'll continue to live on until we co-exist with her kind.
A world free of pain, agony and capture will be felt
For all to live in harmony ....not the cards that were dealt.
Before I go , I must say you are so loved
This love will continue and remain up above.
I'll always be with you no matter the distance
And remember your hardships by helping to better my existence.
Your kindness and warmth will be with me forever in the end
A new life may be spared by such dedication my friend.
Believing in me displayed compassion and warmth
I'll always protect you from evil and from this day forth.
